A most stimulating talk on the interaction in beta decay was given by Dr. C. S. Wu. The Fermi and Gamow-Teller components have approximately the same magnitude, and recoil experiments on helium-6 show that the latter is a tensor interaction. Preliminary results on neon-19 recoils suggest that the Fermi interaction is scalar, as favored by other evidence.
