Theodore David Holstein died might eight, 1985, on the age of sixty nine. His study occupation coated forty six years. His contributions were seminal all through this era, starting together with his first papers with H. Primakoff in 1939 and lengthening to the 12 months of his dying. "Ted" earned his Ph. D. in physics from manhattan college in 1940, after incomes his Master's measure from Columbia college in 1936 and his B. S. from N. Y. U. in 1935. After receiving attractiveness whereas he was once a graduate scholar for his contributions to the atomic conception of magnetism, he participated within the improvement of radar on the Westinghouse study Laboratories, the place he was once a learn physicist from 1941 to 1959. He taught at the college of the collage of Pittsburgh from 1959 to 1965. He joined the Physics division of the Uni­ versity of California, l. a., the place he remained until eventually his loss of life. Ted is survived via his spouse Beverlee, his daughter Lonna Smith, his son Stuart, and his grandson Andy Smith. Ted got many prestigious awards and honors, together with club within the nationwide Academy of Sciences and the yankee Academy of Arts and Sci­ of ences. He got a von Humboldt fellowship for study on the college Regensburg within the Federal Republic of Germany. The Theodore D.

Anisotropy Effects in Superconductors

Contemplating the large growth accomplished in a few distinctive parts of superconductivity over the past few years, it appeared important to debate completely a topic, which has encountered serious professional­ blems at the theoretical and the experimental part, specifically the consequences of the anisotropic electron and phonon houses of (single crystalline) fabrics at the attribute good points of the large­ carrying out nation.

Example text

As illustrated in Fig. 2, with increasing temperature the f~ee-energy minimum associated with the severely localized state is lowered relative to that of the large-radius donor state. At the temperature of the collapse of the donor state, the f~ee-energy minimum of the severely localized state falls below that of the large-radius donor. The R-dependent po~tion of the free energy of a donor electron interacting with atomic displacements and spin waves is plotted against a dimensionless donor-state radius, R, at three temperatures [10J.

1 eV [10]. Indeed, the largest energies in the problem are the electronic bandwidth and the small-polaron binding energy. As is common [12], for the donor-state collapse, we have near-cancellation of the respective delocalizing and localizing effects associated with these two energies. It is the magnetically induced disorder which tips the near-balance to produce sudden and extreme localization. More generally, we should not be surprized when the relatively modest electronic disorder characterizing many noncrystalline solids induces the dramatic change from high-mobility nonpolaronic motion to low-mobility small-polaronic behavior [13].
