...Daniel J. Condon; Mark D. Schmitz Abstract In 1913, Frederick Soddy's research on the fundamentals of radioactivity led to the discovery of “isotopes.” Later that same year, Arthur Holmes published his now famous book The Age of the Earth, in which he applied this new science of radioactivity...

... of matter, a theory first proposed by Democritus almost two and a half thousand years ago, and little challenged since that time. The nuclear age had dawned. New discoveries relating to the atom accrued one after the other. In 1902 Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy, working in Montreal, shocked...

... with Holmes's work, investigations into the elements and their properties continued at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. Following Soddy's discovery of isotopes, in 1914 Frederick Aston built the first mass spectrograph, forerunner of the mass spectrometer, and established the phenomenon of isotopy...

... Rutherford did, or certainly before Rutherford published ( Egerton 1948 ), and although Frederick Soddy is credited with the concept of isotopy because he coined the term ‘isotope’ in 1913, the idea of several species of the same element had been around for a decade previously ( Kauffman 1982 ). The process...

... of U to He or Pb that was measured—the discovery that elements had multiple isotopes was reported separately in the same year ( Soddy, 1913 ; Thomson, 1913 ). Holmes (1913) reviewed all available age determinations for U-Pb and U-He that had bearing on tying numerical age estimates to meaningful...

The Curies determined that the new radiation was an atomic property and named the new phenomenon ‘radioactivity.’ In 1902 Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy published the results of experiments on thorium compounds that led them to propose that the activity of a substance is directly proportional...
