Paper Abstract

Waves of change in reflection and conduction (WCRC)was found in 1992. Since that time, this multidimensional wave structure of solitonic types manifests itself in many works of different laboratories. It could be excited by electromagnetic, corpuscular radiation or by mechanical load at some conditions in different condense matter. Between many WRC features one of the most fundamental is 2-times decreasing of the velocity Ui of two following each another pulses, starting from longitudinal sound velocity vl(km/s), namely, Uiequalsvl/(2)i. The last pulse with iequals30 (seen in Cu massive sample) had velocity - micron/s. As a result of nearly constant Ui value and small losses at reflection these pulses exist in the sample for a long time. Here we reviewed hopefully all information about this phenomenon, which could be seen from original records of Boulder Symposiums publications in 1969-1998. This work was sponsored as project 00-02-17249 by RFBR (Russia).
