Abstract : This Sixteenth Annual Technical Report of the Materials Research Center of Northwestern University presents much of the research that has been conducted by Center members during the period 1 July 1974 - 30 June 1975. There were four major thrust areas supported by the NSF block grant during this report period: Fatigue of Metals, Electron Transport in Anisotropic Materials, Processing of Polymeric Materials and Intermetallic Compounds. In addition, the theoretical investigations of the properties of electron-hole liquids have now been supplemented by an experimental program. This year the research endeavors of our participants on the properties of liquid crystals are presented in a separate area, although most of this work is supported by funding outside the Center. Two additional major thrust areas are supported under the ARPA grant; namely, Heterogeneous Catalysis and Materials for Energy Storage.
