A scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) was held in the Conference Hall of the P N Lebedev Physics Institute, RAS, on December 19, 2005. The following reports were presented at the session:
(1) Krokhin O N (P N Lebedev Physics Institute, RAS, Moscow) ’Electric power transmission using laser radiation’;
(2) Zabrodskii A G (A F Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute, RAS, St.-Petersburg) ’Portable fuel cells: their physics and micro- and nanotechnologies’;
(3) Avrorin E N, Simonenko V A, Shibarshov L I (Russian Federal Nuclear Center ’E N Zababakhin All-Russia Scientific Research Institute of Technical Physics’, Snezhinsk, Chelyabinsk region) ’Physics research during nuclear explosions’;
(4) Preobrazhenskii V L (Wave Research Center of the A M Prokhorov General Physics Institute, RAS, Joint European Laboratory of Nonlinear Magnetoacoustics of Condensed Media (LEMAC)) ’Nonlinear acoustics of front-conjugate ultrasonic waves’.
An abridge version of the first three reports is given below. V L Preobrazhenskii’s report is close in contents to his communication at the session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences held on 28 September 2005, whose brief presentation was published in the No. 1 (2006) issue of Physics-Uspekhi under the Conferences and Symposia heading.
