New Vistas in Electro-Nuclear Physics

The NATO complicated learn Institute "New Vistas in Electro-Nuclear Physics" used to be held in Banff, Alberta, Canada from August 22 to September four, 1985. This quantity con­ tains the lecture notes from that Institute. the assumption to prepare this Institute coincided with the award of investment for a pulse stretcher ring on the college of Saskatchewan's Linear Accelerator Laboratory.

Sample text

This agreement may thus be seen as an experimental confirmation of the quantum size-effect in the phonon spectra. As regards the intercluster vibrations, these correspond to the long-wavelength lattice-waves, for which the cluster compound can be viewed as an effective medium, with an elastic-stiffness constant determined by the packing of the clustermolecules in the solid. At low temperatures the intercluster vibrations thus contribute a Debye-type T3 -term to the specific heat (whereas the intracluster contribution decays exponentially due to the presence of the low-energy quantum-sizegap).
