Some Important Contributions
Resonance absorption and fluorescence measurements of gamma rays in
nuclear reactions, with S. S. Hanna.
First independent confirmation of the discovery of recoilless emission and absorption of nuclear gamma rays, the Mössbauer effect; with
L. L. Lee, Jr., J. P. Schiffer and D. Vincent.
Elucidated the structure of nuclear giant resonances with (p, gamma) and other reactions using large NaI crystals, with S. S. Hanna, R. E. Segel, et al..
Used two-nucleon transfer reactions to measure the Coulomb displacement energies of isospin multiplets.
