By Roger F. Robison

Presented here's the tale of the mining and sale of uranium and radium ore via biographical vignettes, chemistry, physics, geology, geography, occupational overall healthiness, scientific usage, environmental protection and business heritage. integrated are the folk and locations concerned over the process over ninety years of interconnected mining and sale of radium and uranium, ultimately finishing in 1991 with the abandonment of radium paint and scientific units, Soviet nuclear parity, and the Radiation publicity reimbursement Act.

Röntgen-Pulverdiffraktometrie: Rechnergestützte Auswertung, Phasenanalyse und Strukturbestimmung (German Edition)

Die Beugung von Röntgenstrahlen wird heute in vielen Labors zur schnellen, sicheren und zerstörungsfreien Identifikation von Festkörperproben benutzt. Der Einsatz von Kleinrechnern (PCs) und von schnelleren Detektoren hat in der Röntgenpulverdiffraktometrie zu einer Renaissance sowohl in der Phasenanalyse von Gemischen als auch in der Strukturverfeinerung aus Pulverdaten geführt.

By the end of 1894, he had published 50 papers in experimental physics and his excellent work was well known both inside and outside Germany. Twenty-nine of his papers were published in international journals and 21 in regional publications, such as in Munich and in Würzburg [17]. In 1892, German physicist H. R. Hertz reported that the cathode rays could penetrate thin metal, gold, and aluminum foil windows at the opposite end of the tube. His pupil, Paul Lenard, studied this penetration by the cathode rays.

He was awarded over 20 major prizes, medals, and orders of merit. The financial prizes included those from Vienna, Paris, and Hamburg, as well as the 1901 Nobel in Physics. The Nobel Prize money, US$54,000 in 1901, was donated to the University of Würzburg. However, Röntgen was able to maintain considerable investments in multiple countries until the economic depression of 1920. The medals included the Rumford (London), the Iron Cross, the Helmholtz Bronze and Gold, and the Prince Regent Silver.
