Paper Abstract

The published experimental works are analyzed in details in which announcements were made of the observation of some effects which might be associated with the phenomenon of induced (gamma) -emission. It is shown that practically in all cases the obtaining of experimental data was accompanied by circumstances which made difficult to interpret them as the indications of the induced (gamma) -emission effect. The exclusion is one of the experiments by S.I. Bondarevskii's group in which they observed a decay acceleration of the 123mTe (gamma) -source cooled down to the liquid helium temperature as compared with decay of other similar (gamma) - source situated at room temperature. However the small magnitude of the observed effect and absence of control measurements require careful repetition of this experiment.
