CALENDAR OF SOLID STATE EVENTS

Papers accepted for presentation at ~he Conference will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Abstracts of contributed papers must be received by the Conference Chairman no later than March 4, 1977. Information: Eligius A. Wolicki, Radiation Technology Division, Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, D.C. 20375, U.S.A. 4—7 July 1977 Sixth International Conference on Internal Friction and Ultrasonic Attenuation in Solids, Tokyo, Japan. The purpose of the conference is to further the science concerned with the dissipation of energy of mechanical vibrations in crystalline and amorphous solids over the entire range of attainable frequencies. Phenomena and mechanisms of dissipation of energy involving electrons, phonons, phase transitions or transformations, magnetic effects, point defects, impurity atoms, dislocations, grain boundaries are main topics of the Conference. Besides, some related fields such ~ physics of phonon echoes, physics of surface waves, physics of acoustic emission, basic sciences of nondestructive testing, and so on will be included. Information: Prof. R.R. Hasiguti, Faculty of Engineering, Science University of Tokyo, K.agurazaka, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 162, Japan. 6—8 July 1977 International Conference on Hot Electrons in Semiconductors, Denton, Texas, U.S.A. The purpose of the conference is to bring together scientists interested in all aspects of hot Or nonequilibrium carriers in semiconductors. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum in which topics of current interest and importance can be discussed. Invited and contributed papers will be presented in the following areas: (I) bulk transport phenomena, (2) surface and interface transport phenomena, (3) device behavior phenomena, and (4) photo-excitation phenomena (particularly with lasers). The exact topics of the sessions, the invited speakers, and the contributed papers will be decided by a committee composed of international scientists working in the area of hot or non-equilibrium electrons in semiconductors,

Invited speakers will be selected to cover the most interesting developments. Contributed papers reporting significant new results will also be considered. Abstracts must be received by March 1, 1977 and should conform to rules as found in the Bulletin of the American Physical Society. Conference proceedings will be published as a special issue of Solid State Electronics, an international journal. This conference is being sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the American Physical Society, and North Texas State University. Information: Dr. David G. Seiler, Department of Physics, North Texas State University, Denton, Texas 76203, U.S.A. 5—10 September 1977 Inteimitional Conference on Lattice Dynamics, Paris, France. This conference will review the current situation in the field of lattice dynamics. The last general conference on the subject took place in Copenhagen in 1963. Recent years have seen some of the areas of lattice dynamics mature to the point that they should be summarized and brought to the active notice of a larger audience. In addition, a number of exciting new developments have occurred which deserve attention. The Conference will emphasize the unifying aspects and central issues of present-day lattice dynamics and will also highlight the newer topics. While not intended to be exclusive, the following topics will be heavily emphasized: (1) Basic Phonon Properties Microscopy Theory and Models. (2) Non-Linear Lattice Dynamics Weak interactions and Anharmonic Effects; Strong Interactions and Solutions. (3) Lattice Dynamics of Imperfect Crystals Amorphous Solids, Mixed Crystals and Defects. (4) Lattice Instabilities Phase Transitions and Melting. (5) Phonon—electron Interactions Lattice Dynamical Aspects of Charge Density Waves. (6) Lattice Dynamics of Surfaces and Interfaces. (7) Special Materials Low Dimensional Systems and Superionic Conductors. Tutorial review talks will be arranged by the Program Committee. Contributed papers are solicited in all subjects listed above. Some review papers will be drawn from those contributed papers which are unusually timely or important. —
