    Attention is drawn to a multitude of frequency-specific, nonthermal bioeffects-induced in living systems by ultra-low-intensity microwave radiation-the existence of which is not currently taken into account in the formulation of the safety limits to which microwave devices must conform. An attractive possibility of accounting for these effects is in terms of Frohlich's coherent excitations involvi... View full abstract»

    The seminal ideas underlying laser theory originated many decades ago and so it is perhaps remarkable that lasers took so long to become exploited as useful and reliable devices. Possibly even more surprising is the enormous diversity of practical applications which they now find in industry and medicine, as well as in `blue skies' research. This article seeks to whet the reader's interest in a fi... View full abstract»

    In the years immediately following the Second World War, there was much activity in both the USA and the UK to develop electronic computers. In this article, the author, then a Fellow at Birkbeck College London, recalls his own work to design a machine using relays-the automatic relay calculator (ARC). This was subsequently developed into a fully electronic computer APE(X)C, a version of which was... View full abstract»

  • Cut off in its prime: the influence of waveguides on microwave technology

    A paper by Lord Rayleigh, published in February 1897, was seminal in establishing the waveguide as a possible transmission medium which was `out of the ordinary' for the time and, in the event, some years ahead of its practical application. The waveguide is now well established as an engineering tool, especially where there is a requirement for high power along with high sensitivity and low loss. ... View full abstract»
