Abstract

The 3H—3He mass difference has been measured directly utilizing the high resolving power obtainable with the Harvard double-focusing mass spectrometer. The mass difference of this doublet was found to be 19.83 ±0.18 μu (12C = 12). Resultsobtainedforthe doublets HD-3H, HD—3He and H2—D are respectively 5,877.22 ±0.69, 5,896.84 ±0.42 and 1,547.77 ±0.28 μu.
