Recherches récentes sur la radioactivité de 37A

A discussion is given on a recent experiment by 0. Kofoed-Hansen on the electron capture in 37A. The experimental K to L capture ratio is in strong disagreement with the theoretical. It is proposed that this may be due to the use of electron wave functions which does not explicitely depend on the relative distance between the electrons. Also a new treatment of the final ionization of the daughter atom is proposed.
