First Separate Editions. A series of five papers on nuclear physics, in the first of which Fermi investigated the theory of the hyperfine structure of spectral lines (first proposed by Pauli in 1923) and the nuclear magnetic momenta, demonstrating that the nuclear magnetic moment was not of the order of magnitude of the Bohr magneton, as had been previously supposed, but was only 1/1000 of the magnitude of the Bohr magneton. The remaining papers continued the investigations of Fermi and his co-workers, which culminated in Fermi's explanations of beta decay and the introduction of the Fermi constant. DSB. Fermi, Collected Papers, edited by Segre, 57a, 63, 71, 75b, 82. Norman 779-83.
