The composite piezoelectric oscillator is employed to measure the adiabatic elastic moduli of crystalline aluminum over the temperature interval 63°K to 773°K. The data permit a valid extrapolation to 0°K. The Debye characteristic temperature of aluminum at 0°K, computed with these data, is 439°K. Various novel procedures designed to facilitate the use of the method are described.

In the 1950s, Dr. Paul M. Sutton was employed as a section supervisor and research associate in the Research Laboratory of the Corning Glass Works in Corning, New York. In California from 1959 until 1987, he held the title of Department Manager, Research Laboratory Manager, and Development Manager at the Ford Aerospace Corporation's California Division at Newport Beach. His work at Corning involved theory and experiment on transmission of electricity and ultrasound through glass and develoopment of techniques to measure stress in glass. His work at Ford Aerospace was chiefly optics and laser relationed, proposal preparation and research project administration.
