Nuclear physics from the nineteen thirties to the present day

  • Ugo Amaldi
Chapter

Abstract

A systematic presentation of seventy years of development in nuclear physics would need much more space than what is available here; for this reason only three important moments of this fascinating intellectual adventure are focused on.

Keywords

Cadmium Uranium Radioactive Isotope Half Life Paraffin
