Universal features of the equation of state of solids
A study of the energetics of solids leads to the conclusion that the equation of state for all classes of solids in compression can be expressed in terms of a universal function. The form of thisExpand

A universal equation of state for solids
Ionic, metallic, covalent and rare-gas solids have qualitatively different forms for total energy versus inter-atomic spacing. The authors have discovered, however, that there is a universal form forExpand

Compressibility of solids
We have discovered that the isothermal equation of state for solids in compression has a simple, universal form. This single form is shown to accurately describe the pressure and bulk modulus as aExpand

Universal features of the equation of state of metals
The zero-temperature equation of state of metals, in the absence of phase transitions, is shown to be accurately predicted from zero-pressure data. Upon appropriate scaling of experimentalExpand

Universal binding energy curves for metals and bimetallic interfaces
We provide evidence for a universal relationship between metallic binding energies and lattice parameters. By a simple scaling of a universal relationship, one can obtain binding energies as aExpand

Thickness and conductivity of metallic layers from eddy current measurements
A robust method that uses eddy current measurements to determine the conductivity and thickness of uniform conductive layers is described. The method was tested by estimating the conductivity andExpand

'Single-sided' autofocusing of sound in layered materials
A new technique—'single-sided' autofocusing—is proposed and its possible use for inspecting layered materials is surveyed. Based on linear acoustics and the recently developed mathematical theory ofExpand

Universal features of bonding in metals
Binding-energy-distance relations for metallic systems are shown to exhibit a universal behavior under a simple two-parameter scaling. All currently available ab initio calculations for the cohesionExpand

Theory of Ultrasonic Backscatter From Multiphase Polycrystalline Solids
Ultrasound scatters from the microscopic single crystals that constitute polycrystalline solids. The scattering originates from crystallite-crystallite variations in the density and elasticExpand
