Nonlinear acoustic diagnostics of the ocean and rock
Joint scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Joint Physical Society of the Russian Federation ’Nonlinear acoustic diagnostics’ (28 September 2005)
A joint scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the Joint Physical Society of the Russian Federation was held on September 28, 2005 in the Conference Hall of the Lebedev Physics Institute, RAS under the name ’Nonlinear acoustic diagnostics.’ The following reports were presented at the session:
(1) Rudenko O V (Lomonosov Moscow State University) ’Giant nonlinearities in structurally inhomogeneous media and the fundamentals of nonlinear acoustic diagnostics methods’;
(2) Zaitsev V Yu, Nazarov V E, Talanov V I (Institute of Applied Physics, RAS, Nizhny Novgorod) ’Nonclassical’ manifestations of microstructure-induced nonlinearities: new prospects for acoustic diagnostics’;
(3) Esipov I B, Rybak S A, Serebryanyi A N (Andreev Acoustics Institute, RAS) ’Nonlinear acoustic diagnostics of the ocean and rock’;
(4) Preobrazhenskii V L (Research Center for Wave Studies, Prokhorov Institute of General Physics, RAS, European Laboratory in Nonlinear Magneto-acoustics (LEMAC)) ’Parametrically phase-conjugate waves: applications in nonlinear acoustic imaging and diagnostics.’
An expanded version of the report by Rudenko is published in the ’Physics of our days’ section of this issue. An abridged version of reports 2-4 is given below.
