Annual Report of the Delegacy lix Technician having served the department on the technical staff over period of 13 years An intensive review of the department's activities and resources has been undertaken during the year with view to establishing pattern of long-term planning and seeking new directions in university electri- cal engineering education Encouraging progress has been made in one development of potentially great importance in the future that of inter- collegiate co-operation As result of discussions held with the Electri- cal Department at University College limited exchange of staff and students is planned for the 1972-73 session It is anticipated that this co-operation will expand in the future allowing more effective and efficient use of resources In addition joint King's-University College programme of research in acoustic wave signal processing devices supported by has been in progress since January 1972 Another joint venture the Sc course in Electronics Industrial Electronic Systems run with Chelsea College has been revised to bring the syllabus in line with recent developments in electronics The department continues to receive the highest number of appli- cants for the undergraduate course of any of the science-based depart- ments in the College ratio often applicants for each available place and this has resulted in higher standard of entry in the last three years Improved financial support from College funds has enabled much needed purchases of new equipment for the teaching laboratories to be made and has provided better technical facilities for the research programme The research in the department is being consolidated into the areas of signal processing techniques physical electronics and computer applications and digital systems the last two benefiting directly from the purchase of NOVA minicomputer Professor Turner continued his work on acoustic surface-wave devices contributing paper to an Meeting on 'Surface Waves' in London and reading an invited paper at the Institute of Physics Meeting on 'Nonlinear Acoustics' in Edinburgh The joint research programme with University College has successfully demonstrated strong non-linear interactions in piezoelectric semiconductors During the year he made visits to the Atomic Energy Authority the Institute for Cancer Research the Electrical Sciences Division of the National Physical Laboratory Mullard Research Laboratories and Research Laboratories He was invited to spend the summer at the University of California at Berkeley to work with Professor Van Duzer on superconducting devices He also visited laboratories at
