Positron studies of condensed matter: selected papers from the International Positron Workshop, München, 25-27 August 1988

Front Cover
Adam Hilger, Jul 1, 1989 - Science - 148 pages
Positron Studies of Condensed Matter highlights some of the outstanding recent achievements from the use of positron annihilation in solid state physics and outlines possible future trends. Current research is reviewed in authoritative articles by some of the leading practitioners in the field. Important new results in the study of electron momentum densities, Compton scattering and high-temperature superconductors are considered in detail, and the currently developing area of gas-defect interactions is also reviewed. The latest work on applications of poistron microbeams is also included. This volume contains the invited papers and selected contributed papers from the International Workshop on Positron Annihilation in Condensed Matter, held in Munich in August 1988. The emphasis of the meeting was on the most significant results of recent years in this constantly expanding field. Presenting the most important up-to-date data on the subject, Positron Studies of Condensed Matter is an important reference volume for all workers in positron physics, solid state physics, metallurgy and materials science, and will be useful to final-year undergraduates studying solid state physics.
