Reference number: RR/68/295

Date: 12 October 1942

Description

Sectional Committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' after shortening. The three parts should be combined into one. Suggests the main parts should be introduction, theory, experiment, results and discussion. Suggests reducing the number of diagrams. Provides detailed list of comments and points of note. Refers to work of Yakov Il'ich Frenkel. The main conclusions should be made clearer. Comments on the use of the term 'traps'.

Contains extra question - 'Is there any information contained in the paper which likely to be of value to the enemy?' Referee replies no, 'except in so far as any new information about phosphorescent materials might be of value'.
