The complicated examine Institute on 'Elementary Excitations in Solids, Molecules, and Atoms' was once held on the collage of Antwerp (U.I.A.) from June 18th until eventually June thirtieth 1973. The In­ stitute was once backed via NATO. Co-sponsors have been: Agfa-Gevaert N.V. (Mortsel - Belgium), Bell mobile Mfg. Co. (Antwerp­ Belgium), the nationwide technological know-how starting place (Washington D.C. - u.s.) and the college of Antwerp (U.I.A.). a complete of one hundred twenty academics and individuals attended the Institute. over the past few years, colossal development has been made within the description of the hassle-free excitations of the elec­ tronic and vibrational platforms and their interactions. Parallel with this, the experimentalists have acquired notable re­ sults, in part because of availability of coherent gentle bitter­ ces from the a long way infrared in the course of the noticeable zone, and partially as a result of availability of synchrotron radiation assets within the smooth X-ray quarter. the result of this day will bring about fur­ ther development over the following years. It was once the aim of this NATO complicated research Institute to provide astate of the paintings, particularly a survey of test and theory.

It is quite rigorously true that this general second order Born approximation expression for the cross section (see equation (2)) may be rewritten in terms of the wave vector and frequency dependent dielectric constant of the system [17]. This derivation is quite standard and we refer the reader to reference [17] for details. The essential point is that the expression which appears in equation (2) is related, by the fluctuations dissipation theorem, to the real response of the system to a longitudinal external field at wave vector k so that (18) where 2 S(k,w) = -k - Im 4ne 2 [1 j EM(k,w) (19) and (20) The quantity a is the pol~rizability tensor, tensor in the reciprocal lattice vectors G of the system.

(2) The matrix element M = (tl ~ exp[i(k2 - k1)'rj] li) (3) J is evaluated between states ((tl, (il) of the many-body system. The factor exp(ik'Pj) is simply the phase of the scattering amplitude from the entitles which are scattering (electrons, -protons, neutrons). The amplitudes from different scatters are added and then squared so that in general there will be interference between scattering amplitudes.

One sees that it is very heavily dependent on the ratio of the screening constant y in the semiconductor to that Ck s ) in the metal. When the shopt-pange screening in the semiconductor is better, the image potential reverses near to the metal and can even become positive. That is, where the electron density - at least where the electrons are - is higher in the semiconductor, it will in fact have a higher exchange-correlation energy and thus the image attraction will be reversed near the metal.
