Letter from Marcus Laurence Elwin Oliphant, on a paper 'Resonance phenomena in the interaction of fact neutrons with beryllium and aluminium' by K W Allen , William Ernest Burcham and Denys Haigh Wilkinson

Reference number: RR/70/2

Date: 31 May 1947

Description

Returns the paper and it has been much improved by the changes made. However, it is 'still far from well written'. The lack of clarity which remains is due to the lack of experience and guidance but doesn't detract from the value of the results. It should be published in Proceedings.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1947].
