  • An analysis of focusing and deflection in the post–deflection–focus color kinescope

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):1 - 7

    In the Post-Deflection-Focus Color Kinescope, there is an array of parallel wires next to the phosphor screen for the purpose of focusing the electron beam and for deflecting it up and down in order to change colors. Expressions are derived for the deflection sensitivity and focusing properties of such a system which are applicable for all points within the picture area. The theoretical results ar...

    Silicon-aluminum alloy junction diodes have been made that have rectifying properties up to frequencies of 500 megacycles per second. Recovery times from storage effects are of the order of 0.1 microsecond. View full abstract»

  • Small–signal analysis of floating–junction transistor switch circuits

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):10 - 13

    In this paper some characteristics of switch circuits using junction transistors are analyzed. The switch properties result from the large changes in small-signal admittance of one junction of a transistor when the bias polarity of the other junction is reversed. The characteristics analyzed include the small-signal, low-frequency conductance and the associated potentials. The circuits are suitabl... View full abstract»

    Using both an analog computer and an approximate analytical method, the equation describing the beam shapes which result from a uniform pencil beam of electrons entering a periodic magnetic field has been studied. The investigation has been primarily directed toward beams emergent from ideal cathodes only partially shielded from the magnetic field. Cases of both small and large scalloping have bee...

  • The electronic theory of tape–helix traveling–wave structures

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):19 - 25

    An electronic theory of the operation of tape-helix traveling-wave structures is given. This includes the case of traveling-wave amplifiers and backward-wave oscillators operating on any space harmonic. The method of solution is based upon an integral equation for the longitudinal electric field which is solved approximately for the case of small beam currents. This method is equally applicable to... View full abstract»

    A method is given for computing the efficiency of traveling-wave amplifiers with high gain and low C, including the effects of space charge and attenuation. The ballistics of the electrons is governed by the Boltzmann transport equation which, together with the circuit equation, is solved in a power series expansion of the input voltage. Only the first two terms of this series are computed and var... View full abstract»

  • Study of a plane short on a shielded helix

    The results of probe measurements along a shielded helix terminated in a plane conducting "short" are given. These results seem to indicate that the higher-order fields at the short are reactive and that the minimums are shifted out from the normal 180-degree position. The amount of this shift seemed to be relatively constant at approximately 38 degrees from 500 to 2,000 megacycles for a particula... View full abstract»

  • A coupled mode description of the backward–wave oscillator and the Kompfner dip condition

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):37 - 42
    Cited by:  Papers (27)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (546 KB)

    The start oscillation condition for the backward-wave oscillator and the operation of the traveling-wave tube amplifier at the Kompfner dip point are described from the point of view of the coupling of two modes of propagation. Growing waves are not involved. Two waves are sufficient when the tube is more than a half plasma wavelength long. Operation in this "large space charge" domain is inherent... View full abstract»
