    The social sciences are in great need of a more precise understanding of how an idea is conveyed from one mind to another. The difficulty seems to stem from an inability to find the fundamental and independent parameters from which the behavior of the brain and the consequent human response can be constructed in a mathematical sense. This problem concerns the electronics scientist as well. He must... View full abstract»

    A review of the activities of various governmental, industrial, and academic institutions is made in the field of panel display devices. These devices are thin sheets which can display luminescent information. Insofar as possible the present state of the art is indicated. The displays are grouped as: evacuated, solid, gas, liquid and mechanical. Among the evacuated types are listed the thin cathod... View full abstract»

    A crossed film cryotron deposited on an insulated superconductor is described and analyzed. It has a time constant of less than one μsec and is approximately 100 times faster than the original crossed film cryotron [4]. The dc dissipation is less than five μw and the active area of each element is approximately 5×10-4 cm2. These cryotrons and all their interconnecting circuitr... View full abstract»

    The fabrication and properties of GaAs tunnel diodes are described. The material preparation is discussed; devices are described which have been fabricated consistently with peak to valley current ratios > 15:1, with voltage swings in the range from 0.9 to 1.2, and with current densities from 2000 amp/cm2 to over 10,000 amp/cm2 (and with correspondingly low capacitances, e.g., capacitances as low ...

  • The Reflected-Beam Kinescope

    The reflected-beam kinescope is a short tube particularly suited for picture sizes of 21 inches or more. It retains the conventional gun and external deflection components and is axially symmetric. Although the effective deflection angle is nearly 180°, the deflection power required is equivalent to that used in conventional 90° kinescopes. The electron beam scans through an apertured phosphor s... View full abstract»

  • Shot Noise in Tunnel Diode Amplifiers

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1504 KB)

    The contributions of Johnson noise and shot noise to the noise in a tunnel diode are analyzed according to a simple theoretical model. The current stream flowing across the junction in one direction is assumed to be uncorrelated with that flowing across the junction in the opposite direction, and both current streams are assumed to produce full shot noise. A simple parabolic band structure is also... View full abstract»

  • A Parametric Device as a Nonreciprocal Element

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):1424 - 1430
    Cited by:  Papers (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1459 KB)

    A parametric device has been proposed which is equivalent to a passive nonreciprocal phase shifter. A first-order analysis is made assuming the series resistance effect in the variable capacitance diode to be negligible and a dispersion theory for matching and bandwidth of the nonreciprocal element is developed. The nonreciprocal phase behavior of the device was exhibited experimentally over a nar... View full abstract»

  • The Compatibility Problem in Single-Sideband Transmission

    Under the assumption of simultaneous amplitude and phase modulation of a carrier, a study is made of the relations that must hold between the envelope and the phase of a single-sideband wave. In particular, it is shown that absolute compatibility with standard AM receivers employing a linear envelope detector cannot possibly be achieved with the spectral economy of conventional single sideband.

  • On the Resolving Time and Flipping Time of Magnetoresistive Flip-Flops

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):1436 - 1448
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2989 KB)

    The time constant of the exponential approach to the stable states is shown to be a fair approximation for the flipping time of the "bridge" magnetoresistive flip-flop. This time constant turns out to be at least of the order of milliseconds for the magnetoresistive materials known at present, which is too large. Similar time constants are used as an approximation for the resolving times of a gene... View full abstract»

  • Noise in Oscillators

    Noise affects the behavior of oscillators in at least two important ways. During sustained oscillation, noise creates undesired perturbations or modulation in both the amplitude and the phase of the wave. The amplitude perturbations produce a continuous spectrum which in typical situations is quite weak and broader than the bandwidth of the resonator. The phase perturbations disperse the nominal f...

  • Background Noise in Nonlinear Oscillators

    For a general black box model of a resistive one terminal-pair nonlinear oscillator, it is shown that the noise output from noise bands around the oscillatory frequency is composed of an additive noise of the shape of the oscillator resonant circuit and a very small FM broadening of the oscillator line. A noise generator across the oscillator terminals will produce the same amount of additive nois... View full abstract»

  • Monochromaticity and Noise in a Regenerative Electrical Oscillator

    Cited by:  Papers (22)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1289 KB)

    The regenerative oscillator is postulated to be equivalent to an RLC circuit in which a negative resistance-RB, placed parallel with R, has a value which is a slowly varying function of the mean-square voltage across it. Expressions are derived for the departure from monochromaticity of the regenerative oscillator so represented, as well as for the intensity and bandwidth of the thermal noise gene...
