    Electronic music and instruments, with an incubation period of about forty years since their early beginnings, are now rapidly growing into a final commercial stage. During 1935 retail sales of these new musical instruments exceeded two million dollars in the United States alone. This paper presents for the first time in this country a review of traditional musical instruments, their advantages an... View full abstract»

  • A Power Amplifier for Ultra-High Frequencies

    A consideration of the special problems encountered at ultra-high frequencies has led to the design of a push-pull power pentode, useful as an amplifier, frequency multiplier, and modulator at frequencies of 300 megacycles per second and below. Unusual construction features include the mounting of two pentodes in the same envelope with interconnected screen and suppressor grids, complete shielding... View full abstract»

  • Oscillations of Hollow Quartz Cylinders Cut along the Optic Axis

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1484 - 1494

    Hollow quartz cylinders cut along the optic axis have been excited to vibrate at five fundamental frequencies, corresponding to radial, circumferential, longitudinal, torsional, and transverse vibrations. Empirical relations connecting the dimensions of the cylinders and the frequencies of the different modes of vibrations are formulated. All of these modes of vibrations have been confirmed by exa...

  • A Harmonic Method of Intercomparing the Oscillators of the National Standard of Radio Frequency

    Publication Year: 1936, Page(s):1495 - 1500

    A method of precisely measuring the frequency difference between two frequency standards which have nominally the same fundamental frequency is outlined. The application of this method to the continuous intercomparison of the piezo oscillators in the primary frequency standard maintained by the National Bureau of Standards is described. The customary method of measuring the frequency difference be... View full abstract»

  • This Matter of Contact Potential

    The term "contact potential," when used in connection with thermionic vacuum tubes, has come to include certain combinations of spurious voltages which affect the operation of the tube. The combination which is effective depends upon the method of measurement used or upon the application to which the tube is put. The combinations which are effective are grouped under four heads: (1) floating eleme... View full abstract»

  • A Study of the Characteristics of Noise

    It is well known that when smooth noise such as hiss is passed through or generated in a radio-frequency amplifier, the root-mean-square output is proportional to the square root of the frequency band width. Experiments are described which show that the peak value of the hiss is also proportional to the square root of band width. The crest factor (defined as the ratio of the amplitudes of the high...

  • Quasi Transients in Class B Audio-Frequency Push-Pull Amplifiers

    Although class B audio-frequeny amplifiers have been analyzed by many previous investigators, the effect of the leakage inductance of the output transformer or choke in producing quasi transients, i.e., exponential terms which recur periodically, has passed unnoticed. This paper gives equations for determining these quasi transients in the wave forms of the plate voltage, the plate current, and th... View full abstract»
