Referee's report by Alfred Fowler, on a paper 'The absorption of light in caesium vapour in the presence of foreign gases' by Robert William Ditchburn and J Harding

Reference number: RR/59/54

Date: 22 May 1936

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Does not think the paper can be shortened. The paper is a continuation of earlier ones by the same author. The experiments have been carried out skillfully. Suggests submitting the paper to Ralph Howard Fowler, who is more familiar with quantum mechanics.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']
