display screen based on a matrix of lightemitting gallium-arsenide-phosphide
diodes.4 The new screen is reported to be more functionally reliable and,
because it uses less tha-n 20% of the power of conventional cathode ray -tubes,
it runs at a much lower temperature. 
The RCA Laboratories in Princeton, 
- N.J., produced the first instance of superconductivity of an alloy containing
only two elements at a temperature higher than 20° K.5 The new material,
niobium-gallium, was superconductive at 20.3°K, which could reduce cooling
costs for the superconductive phenomenon by 75% and could hasten practical
applications in electric motors, generators, and transmission lines. 
 A patent was issued on the recovery of gallium values from circulating aluminate
557 
solution used in the Bayer process for producing alumina.6 
 The proceedings of a conference held at Pebble Beach, Calif., on optoelectronics
were published by the Materials Research Corporation.7 Papers on the technology
of growing single crystals of gallium arsenide and gallium phosphide and
the evaluation of optoelectronic materials were included i-n the proceedings.
