    The Dark Side of Strong Corporate Earnings

  • Toronto-based broker Brockhouse Cooper reckons a spike in oil prices to $130 a barrel would lower U.S. industrial-production growth from roughly 5% annually to about 4%.

    Investors Try to Follow the Bouncing Euro

  • Shull was rewarded with the Physics Prize in 1994, together with Bertram N. Brockhouse, who specialized in another aspect of neutron scattering on condensed material: the small energy losses resulting when neutrons excite vibrational modes (phonons) in a crystalline lattice.

    The Nobel Prizes in Physics 1901-2000

  • For this purpose, Brockhouse developed the 3-axis neutron spectrometer, by which complete dispersion curves (phonon energies as function of wave vectors) could be obtained.
