Abstract : The document reports the overall research activities of the Materials Research Laboratory of The Pennsylvania State University and the individual activities of the faculty affiliated with it. The survey covers the following: Preparation of materials; including synthesis, thermodynamics, equilibria, kinetics, and crystal growth of inorganic materials; Characterization of materials, which encompasses only those studies which provide, directly, information on the chemical composition or the atomic structure of the phases; Properties of materials, which includes the work on the elastic, magnetic, electrical and optical properties of solids; The glass program, which represents a 'horizontal cut' across the other groupings. A final section on Science Information Dissemination describes the varied and extensive activities of the Laboratory in interacting with the scientific and general public from the level of short courses to that of public policy.
