Karl Lintner - Classified Reports

Classified Reports

  • Georg Stetter and Karl Lintner Schnelle Neutronen im Uran. Der Zuwachs durch den SpaltprozeƟ und der Abfall durch unelastische Streuung (7 November 1941).

The following are cited as Geheimberichte (secret reports) on German nuclear research from the period 1939 to 1945 and which are being held in the Stadtarchiv Haigerloch:

  • Georg Stetter and Karl Lintner Schnelle Neutronen in Uran (I)
  • G. Stetter and K. Lintner Schnelle Neutronen in Uran (II und III): Streuversuche
  • K. Lintner Schnelle Neutronen in Uranoxyd IV
  • W. Jentschke and K. Lintner Schnelle Neutronen in Uran V. This paper is also identified as G-277. There are nearly 400 reports in the G-series. Many of the reports in this series were published in Kernphysikalische Forschungsberichte (Research Reports in Nuclear Physics), an internal publication of the German Uranverein. The reports were classified Top Secret, they had very limited distribution, and the authors were not allowed to keep copies. The reports were confiscated under the Allied Operation Alsos and sent to the United States Atomic Energy Commission for evaluation. In 1971, the reports were declassified and returned to Germany. The reports are available at the Karlsruhe Nuclear Research Center and the American Institute of Physics.

Famous quotes containing the words reports and/or classified:

    He who is only a traveler learns things at second-hand and by the halves, and is poor authority. We are most interested when science reports what those men already know practically or instinctively, for that alone is a true humanity, or account of human experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But there are advantages to being elected President. The day after I was elected, I had my high school grades classified Top Secret.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
