Influence of Extranuclear Fields on Angular Correlations

Phys. Rev. 93, 1304 – Published 15 March 1954
F. Coester


General formulas exhibiting the influence of extranuclear fields on angular correlations of two or three successive γ rays are derived from first principles. They are applicable to polarization correlations as well as to directional correlations. The effect of transitions in the electron shell during the life of the intermediate nucleus is discussed briefly.
