Metal-insulator transitions
Research on metal–insulator transitions is at the moment quite fashionable. In many materials the electrical behavior changes from metallic to nonmetallic when the pressure, temperature or magneticExpand

Metal-Insulator Transition
A general survey of the idea of the metal-nonmetal transition is given with particular emphasis to the following points: (a) is the transition of first order; (b) can one observe the transition; andExpand

The theory of indentation and hardness tests
A discussion is given of the indentation of ductile materials by cylindrical punches with conical heads. On the experimental side, experiments have been made with work-hardened and with annealedExpand

The Scattering of Fast Electrons by Atomic Nuclei
Section 1 .— The hypothesis that the electron has a magnetic moment was, as is well known, first introduced to account for the duplexity phenomena of atomic spectra. More recently, however, Dirac hasExpand

Explanation of the large spin-dependent recombination effect in semiconductors
Previous theories to explain the variation of photoconductivity upon saturation of electron spin resonance, as observed by Lepine in silicon, predict an effect 10 to 100 times smaller thanExpand

Three-dimensional stress distributions in hexagonal aeolotropic crystals
The conditions for equilibrium in an elastically stressed hexagonal aeolotropic medium (transversely isotropic) are formulated, and solutions are found in terms of two ‘harmonic’ functions o 1 , o 2Expand
