Abstract:

Some recent advances in phonon generation and detection in the gigacycle region are described. The technique, as applied to quartz, has been extended to non-piezoelectric materials by the use of vapor deposited thin film piezoelectric transducers. Attenuation measurements in quartz, MgO, TiO2 and Al2O3 are described and discussed. A theory for the behavior of attenuation as a function of temperature is also given. Author
