Abstract:

The technical report is divided into three parts Part I. Ultrasonic wave velocity and attenuation are measured in the critical mixing region of the binary liquid mixture hexane and beta, beta-dichloroethyl ether. The results are compared with results in other binary liquid mixtures. Part II. Comparison of the measurement of ultrasonic pressure amplitudes by four different techniques and measurement of ultrasonic wave velocity in solids by use of capacitive transducers. Part III. Nonlinear acoustics of solids is discussed. Nonlinearity parameters of germanium, fused silica, and copper are measured, and their temperature dependence is determined between 3 K and 300 K. Author
