I was wondering what the title of his original publication on Neutron capture was. I've found his Nobel lecture but I want to read his initial publication. A title would be most appreciated. It's currently hard to find it since searching his name brings up a lot autobiographical material, telescopes, Stanford publication archives, you name it. A link to the original wins you a big e-hug =)

I'm not sure it's the very first, but an early paper is Artificial Radioactivity Produced by Neutron Bombardment, Fermi et al., Proc. Roy. Soc. London A 146, 483–500 (1934). First footnote on the first page refers to about eight "preliminary results announced in short communications," mostly with Fermi as an author.
