In connection with the problem of the ferroelectricity a differential formalism is developed as a tool to describe the fine electronic properties in solids. This includes the gauge invariant definition of the differentiation in k-space (position operator), the notion of holonomy group and characteristic gauge field in k-space of electron states. A variational principle and possible solutions of resulting field equations are discussed. A criterion for the appearance of the ferroelectricity is proposed.

The absorption and decomposition kinetics of the SiC precursor (CH3Si(H)mu(CH2)2Si(CH3) CH2SIH2CH3) have been studied on the Si(100) surface using a combination of molecular beam mass spectrometry and Auger electron spectroscopy. The intact precursor adsorbs with a heat of adsorption of about 10 kcal/mol. The decomposition rate becomes measurable at about 800 K, and increases with increasing temperatures. The resulting films are stoichiometric, polycrystalline Sic, with partial epitaxial orientation relative to the substrate.

Long time power released in YBa2Cu307 after rapid cooling from the equilibrium temperature T sub 1 (2.35 K less than or equal to T sub 1 less than or equal to 15.11 K) to T sub 0 = 1.5 K and the heat capacity (1.2 K less than or equal to T less than or equal to 100 K) were measured. The observed power release is similar to those of amorphous solids. The resulting density of states of two level systems is close to the values obtained from heat capacity and acoustic measurements from heat capacity and acoustic measurements.

Superconductor-Insulator-Superconductor (SIS) tunnel junction mixers are known to provide ultra-high sensitivity receiver applications above 30 GHz. In this two year (Phase 2) program, HYPRES, in collaboration with the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, developed novel fully integrated SIS mixer circuits, and demonstrated a unique high efficiency cooling system. The integrated SIS mixer chip contains, aside from the actual mixer elements, passive tuning components, an IF filter, a coplanar transmission line, and a waveguide coupler, necessary components heretofore realized off-chip. Fabrication of the integrated mixer required development of a nine level process and optimization of the process dependent electrical parameters of the SiS devices. The device performs efficiently in the range of 75-115 GHz. A novel dewar-based cooler, which makes use of the extremely low thermal conductivity of the fused silica chip substrate to achieve an incremental thermal load of 25 mW, was fabricated and demonstrated. Such a cryostat allows relatively long term unattended operation of SIS, or other, cryogenic devices. GRA

Direct evidence for adduct formation between butenes and etched, single-crystal n-CdS and n-CdSe(CdS(e)) surfaces has been obtained from photoluminescence (PL) measurements. Exposure of Cos(e) to butenes causes enhancement of the solids' band edge PL relative to a N2 ambient. For 30 percent mixtures of the olefins in N2, the magnitude of the enhancement follows the order, 1,3-butadiene is greater than cis-2-butene trans-2-butene is greater than isobutylene 1-butene, and correlates with the olefin basicities, based on photoionization potentials. Enhancements in PL intensity can be fit to a dead-layer model, allowing the determination of the reduction in depletion width in the semiconductor resulting from olefin exposure; depletion width reductions reach a few hundred Angstroms for adducts of 1,3-butadiene with CdS(e). The PL changes were used in conjunction with the Langmuir adsorption isotherm model to yield equilibrium constants for adduct formation

Non-oxide inorganic compounds such as sulfides, phosphides, and mixed-anion sulfide-phosphides are of interest as possible infrared window materials. Our research on the solid state chemistry and structure-property relationships of these materials includes the directed synthesis of new compounds as well as the study of compounds that have been reported in the literature but which have been incompletely characterized for this application. The present work includes investigations of three ternary sulfide systems: ZnGa2S4, Aln2S4(A = Ca, Sr, Ba), and CaY2S4. Samples were prepared in polycrystalline form and/or as crystals. New compounds were obtained in our studies of the Caln2S4, Srin2S4, and CaY2S4 systems. Compounds were characterized by X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, Fourier Transform Infrared Radiometry, and thermogravimetric analysis.

Zinc sulfide is an IR window material and a transparent semiconductor with a large direct band gap. It also possesses piezoelectric, photoconductive and electroluminescent properties. Thin films of zinc sulfide can be utilized for infrared antireflection coatings, Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs), electroluminescent (EL) displays, multilayer dielectric filters, optical phase modulation and light guiding in integrated optics. In recent years, there has been a large amount of effort directed at the growth of high quality films of ZnS. Various fabrication techniques have been employed, such as ion beam sputtering, Atomic Layer Epitaxy (ALE), Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE), metal organic chemical vapor deposition and spray pyrolysis. Zinc sulfide films were prepared by conversion of zinc oxide films in the presence of hydrogen sulfide. The films which contained both the hexagonal and cubic forms of zinc sulfide were shown to be uniform and gave a measured band gap of 3.65 eV. The electrical resistances of the films prepared were greater than 10 to the 7th ohms.

The structure-property relationships of several conducting transition metal oxides, as well as their preparative methods, are presented. The importance of preparing homogenous phases with precisely known stoichiometry is emphasized. A comparison is also made of the various techniques used to prepare both polycrystalline and single crystal samples. For transition metal oxides, the metallic properties are discussed either in terms of metal-metal distances which are short enough to result in metallic behavior, or in terms of the formation of a conduction band resulting from covalent metal-oxygen interactions. Metallic behavior is observed when the conduction bands are populated with either electrons or holes. The concentration of these carriers can be affected by either cation or anion or anion substitutions. The discussion in this presentation will be limited to the elements Re, Ti, V, Cr, Mo and Cu.

The kinematic constraints are elucidated, and the corresponding kinematic indeterminacy of part of the deviatoric stress tensor, in a rigid-viscoplastic single crystal lacking five independent slip systems. The indeterminate stress component is a Lagrange multiplier enforcing the kinematic constraint, and it must be determined from equilibrium considerations. A simple polycrystalline model is constructed which precisely satisfies local kinematic constraints as well as global compatibility. Volume-average global stresses are obtained by approximating the local constraint stress as the corresponding projection of the (to-be-determined) global stress. Applications of the model to hexagonal crystals without pyramidal slip, and to large deformation and texturing of orthorhombic polycrystalline materials (olivine; HDPE) are made.

The remarkable advances in computation and communications technologies in the last half century have been made possible by the invention and development of a vast array of solid state electronic and optical devices. By striving to achieve higher speeds of operation, and greater levels of integration, ever more powerful computing and communications tools have been created. The transistor, the laser and a host of other devices have been invented and reinvented many times in a multitude of materials systems. As materials growth and fabrication technologies continue to improve, it becomes possible to use new physical phenomena in solid state devices, in addition to optimizing the performance of existing devices. Optical interconnects are attracting attention as a means to overcome the interconnection bottleneck in high speed electronic systems. The best type of light source for such schemes is sometimes a continuous-wave laser used in conjunction with a light modulator, which acts as an external switch. Modulators that operate in perpendicular geometry, with light directed normal to the plane of the device, allow simple fabrication of two-dimensional arrays: these are of interest for multiple parallel optical interconnections and for optical information processing.

CHEMKIN is a chemical kinetics FORTRAN program developed to treat the gas-phase kinetics and associated thermodynamics for a set of user-defined chemical reactions. A key assumption made in CHEMKIN is that the gas behaves as a perfect gas, a restriction that results in noninterference of the individual species in a gas mixture (i.e., partial molal properties equal specific properties of pure component). Recently, the code was modified to account for real gas behavior according to the general limit method. The appropriate departure integrals for two real gas equations of state were calculated and included in a modified version of the code. The equations of state considered in this work were: a constant-covolume Noble-Abel function, and the Becker-Kistiakowsky-Wilson formulation.

Initial studies have concentrated on the preparation of epitaxial Zinc Selenide on Indium Phosphide (100) substrates and an optimum bakeout procedure for the substrates determined. Subsequently, the doping of ZnSe with small amounts of Tellurium (up to ca 5 at percent) was achieved and the structural, compositional and optical properties of the epitaxial layers investigated. It was demonstrated by photoluminescence measurement that in small concentrations Te acts as an isolated isoelectronic trap in ZnSe and at higher concentrations clusters of Te atoms form. This results in broadened photoluminescence emission peaks. It proved impossible with our atmospheric pressure MOCVD reactor and using a conventional source of Te to prepare epitaxial layers of the ternary ZnSe(1-y)Te(y) with Te concentration in excess of ca 5 at percent.

The research involves developing general computational methods for predicting the thermodynamic properties of condensed state chemically reactive systems. The overall effort has encompassed both computer studies, and parallel laboratory experimental work to support the evolving computational models. To date, the soundness of molecular mechanics/force-field techniques were demonstrated for accurate prediction of the thermodynamic properties of chemically reactive systems. Extensive work was done with three molecular mechanics models, Boyd's MOLBD3, Allinger's MMP2 and the Warshel/Lifson/Karplus QCFF/PI program. Not one of these programs at present has general full thermodynamic output capability. Modification of the QCFF/PI is well on its way to full thermodynamic capability. Supporting laboratory studies have involved careful bomb calorimetry for H(sub fo information, X-ray structure determination for accurate molecular geometry data, and kinetics/equilibrium determinations for various prototypical Diels-Alder reactions. Vapor pressure studies for candidate Diels-Alder compounds are also underway. The bomb calorimetric and greater initial effort on vapor pressure studies have replaced the original solvent effect and hindered rotation NMR studies planned, on the basis of most critical data needs for correct computational model development.

The primary motivations for trying to measure thermophysical properties of materials on subsecond timescales are to extend measurements to higher temperatures than can be conveniently maintained continuously, or to make measurements on systems out of thermodynamic equilibrium. Since these measurements are difficult, one must keep in mind the needs for the data. These include the ability to use materials cleverly in new high-pressure/high-temperature applications, as well as the development of calibrated models for the response of materials to rapid energy deposition, by laser pulses, for example. Several key areas have been identified in which effort is needed for substantial progress in subsecond measurements, and which have unusual promise for useful new scientific results. These areas include the problems of high-temperature standards, equilibration during rapid heating, measurements at higher temperatures combined with higher pressures, measurements on specific interesting materials, and measurement of microstructural properties at high temperature and their relation to macroscopic response. Each of these areas will be touched upon here. DOE

Thermophysical properties of most liquid metals are difficult to measure because of the very high temperatures and pressures required, but they are important for several reasons. These include understanding the fundamental physics of liquid metals and experimental modeling and design of exploding wires, foils and fuses. The melting points of all but a few metals are at high temperatures, with many exceeding 2000 K. The critical points of most metals exceed temperatures and pressures that may be easily achieved in static high-pressure systems. Because of the limitations on temperatures that may be reached in static high-pressure experiments, various dynamic techniques have been developed to study liquid metals. We use a resistive pule heating method in which a cylindrical wire-shaped sample is made to expand along a isobaric path. During an experiment the sample is heated, made to melt, and enthalpy, temperature, and specific volume are measured. After the liquid end state is reached, a single sound speed measurement per experiment is made. From these fundamental properties, other properties such as thermal expansion coefficient bulk modulii, and compressibilities may be calculated. Here we report measurements that we have recently made on liquid niobium.

Since DAC is preparing to accept data from a subcontractor in conjunction with its DOD C17 contract, the primary goal of this test was to demonstrate, test, and evaluate DAC's ability to inerchange and use digital data in 1840A/28000 form. A secondary goal was to evaluate the CTN's 28000 Class 2 Reference Material utilized the first tim in this test and scheduled for use in subsequent tests of 28000.
