    The lecture on which this article is based described how it came about that J.C. Lyons and Co. Ltd., a firm well known as tea shop proprietors and caterers, came to be involved in the building of digital computers, first for their own use and then for sale. They based their work on the EDSAC at Cambridge University, and they took a firm decision to proceed with the building of an enhanced and re-e... View full abstract»

    This paper reports some early experiences in organising a practical training programme for students of electrical engineering on the design, realisation and characterisation of microsystems. After students have been given an overview of CAD tools dedicated to microsystem technology, an electrothermal actuator is designed for implementation using one of two different technologies and simulated. The... View full abstract»

    Over the last few years there has been marked change in culture towards offshore emissions from combustion equipment. Traditionally, offshore there has been a `fuel is free' mentality and emissions have rarely been measured. UK offshore legislation has now accelerated the need for accurate monitoring of pollutants, especially from gas turbines. In particular, the introduction of emissions trading ... View full abstract»

    The First World War, sometimes called the `war of invention', brought technology to the attention of everyone and played a major role in establishing the electronics industry. It brought about mass production of electron tubes, especially for use in wireless telegraphy and telephony, and revealed how versatile the technology was, as dozens of new applications emerged. Because of these applications... View full abstract»

    The total solar eclipse over Zimbabwe provided an opportunity for a team from the National University of Science and Technology to perform a number of experiments. After a 400 mile journey to a suitable location in the path of the lunar shadow, the instruments were assembled on the edge of the Zambezi valley. Conditions were as near perfect as could be wished, with a cloudless sky and stable atmos... View full abstract»
