Speakers: Geoffrey Constable

The discovery of the neutron in 1932 by Dr James Chadwick is world-famous. However, there are gaps concerning what is known about Chadwick’s apparatus, which was itself innovative. This lecture fills in some of these gaps, describes the difficulties in making the apparatus work as intended, and explains how and by whom such difficulties were overcome.
