    We report a strong attenuation of sound waves in a phononic band gap crystal of steel rods arranged in air. We investigate the attenuation level reached in the gaps for finite thickness samples. We show that a bypassing of sound waves by the sides of the sample are responsible for the observed...

    Using Cluster 4 satellite data, we examine activities of fast magnetosonic (MS) waves in the outer radiation belt near the location L=4.2 on 28 May 2005. We adopt a Gaussian distribution to fit the observed power spectral density of MS waves and find the fitting wave strength to be 245 pT. We...
