Title: The [alpha]-rays and the [alpha]-particle : a study of ionization and allied phenomena produced by [alpha]-rays
Author: Briggs, C. A. (Clark Arthur), b. 1883
Date: 1910
Publisher: University of Missouri
Abstract: As a result of experiments by M. Henri Beoquerel in 1896 we now know a certain class of chemical elements as Radio-active. A radio-active body gives off radiations that have the following effects: 1) they will affect a photographic plate; 2) they will excite phosphorescence in some substances; 3) the rays will ionize a gas thru which they pass. The study of the last and most important property has contributed most of our knowledge of radio-activity.
