Brief reviews are given of work performed on a number of projects concerned with High Temperature Materials and with Laser Materials. Under the High Temperature Materials heading, topics include diffusion of oxygen in oxides, growth of Al2O3 crystals by chemical vapor deposition, the electronic structure of transition metal borides and related compounds, the optical constants of titanium, high temperature creep in copper, fracture in glass, the mechanism of volatilization of polymers and long-chain compounds, and the interaction between mechanical relaxation and annealing in polymers. Work on Laser Materials includes measurement of bulk optical and elastic properties of laser materials, a study of the orange degradation of ruby, measurements of sub-crystal misalignment in ruby, damage in glass induced by high-energy laser pulses, chemical analyses for ruby and Nd-doped laser glasses, and preliminary studies on detection of submicroscopic inhomogeneities in glass.
