Abstract:

After a period spanning over twenty years, ONR support on its Cornell Contract Present 6N00014-75-C-0248 is being terminated. During that time a great deal has happened in science and in the National Support of Science. Not only has the Office of Naval Research undergone great changes in that time, but so also has the emphasis in this particular area, which ONR has helped to support over this long period of time. It was originally funded as research into the optical properties of alkali halides. Alkali halides at that time was a big area for Cornell solid state physics research. And for a long time that remained the emphasis in the work on the ONR Contract. This gradually changed and during recent years the work has been directed more toward the use of lasers and development in laser technology.
