I am interested in an old physics paper by Viktor Hambardzumyan and Dmitrii Ivanenko: Doklady Akademii Nauk SSSR, ser. A, No. 6, p.153 (1930). It concerns the structure of the atomic nucleus and accurately predicted the neutron's existence. I have been unable to locate it online.

Inter-library loan. You local university library participates and it lets them get things in from the damndest places. Of course that mean the lead time can be considerable, but it is worth initiating a ILL request while you continue to scour the internet and other sources. –  dmckee Jun 10 '12 at 16:56
Another related article is: springerlink.com/content/ek2q156624661848 but I could only locate a $34 copy. –  JoeHobbit Jun 10 '12 at 17:12
The facebook page says the journal was published first in 1933, but the article found by voix agrees with the original poster's date of 1930. –  JoeHobbit Jun 10 '12 at 20:05

Thankyou, I have asked for an english copy on the Library Stack: libraries.stackexchange.com/questions/691/… –  JoeHobbit Jun 11 '12 at 18:08
@JoeHobbit, what is your email? I can send a google translation of the paper to you. –  voix Jun 12 '12 at 16:54

Is it one of these? What's the title of the paper? I guess it could be the third one. I have no idea what the title means.

(If you need it translated, get the Google Chrome browser.) The papers are in English.

***Edit: Nevermind, these papers aren't relevant.
