Intrinsic Non-Linearity (in Phonon Numbers) of the Response Functions of Elastic Systems: A Proposal of Quantum Acoustics
Part of the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences book series (SSSOL, volume 47)
Quantum acoustics is proposed: propagation and generation of sound pulses or, more generally of elastic perturbances, inside a linear medium are studied.
KeywordsWave Packet Coherent State Elastic System Acoustic Pulse Phonon State
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
