Lemma 10.119.12 (Krull-Akizuki). Let $R$ be a domain with fraction field $K$. Let $K \subset L$ be a finite extension of fields. Assume $R$ is Noetherian and $\dim (R) = 1$. In this case any ring $A$ with $R \subset A \subset L$ is Noetherian.

**Proof.**
To begin we may assume that $L$ is the fraction field of $A$ by replacing $L$ by the fraction field of $A$ if necessary. Let $I \subset A$ be a nonzero ideal. Clearly $I$ generates $L$ as a $K$-vector space. Hence we see that $I \cap R \not= (0)$. Pick any nonzero $x \in I \cap R$. Then we get $I/xA \subset A/xA$. By Lemma 10.119.11 the $R$-module $A/xA$ has finite length as an $R$-module. Hence $I/xA$ has finite length as an $R$-module. Hence $I$ is finitely generated as an ideal in $A$.
