Abstract : The 1971 Conference was concerned with both the properties and applications of solid state and quantum electronic devices. The meeting was particularly concerned with a preliminary assessment of the future social implications of solid state device technology. Other applicational papers had to do with monitoring of pollutants in the atmosphere, solid state microwave devices in airborne radars, Gunn devices applied to miniaturized aircraft altimeters, Josephson junctions, laser applications to frequency standards, chemical lasers, noise problems in variety of high-frequency electronic generators and amplifiers including IMPATT and TRAPATT avalanche diodes, Gunn oscillators, LSA mode oscillators, transistors, chemical lasers, junction lasers, and the barrier injection transit time low-noise devices made with silicon.
