Request to grow multiple quantum wells for specific heat experiments for the fractional effect.

Request to grow GaAs/ AIGaAs for Shubnikov-de Haas measurements, 7/29/1986.

Request to grow high mobility bulk GaAs to study donor transitions using a Michailson interferometer, 8/6/1986.

Request to grow an MIS structure for low density high mobility 2DEG, Fall 2016.

Data from sample #34. Certain peaks in the quantum Hall measurements are different than other samples he has studied, 11/24/1986.

Communications with Dan's student Ming-Jey Chou regarding data from samples #34 and #19, 4/28/1986

Samples sent to Postdoctoral fellow Marie Theresa Vuong for donor transition studies, 1986 December 23

Measurements done on sample #51 by student Nguyen Truong-Thao, 6/9/1986
