    This paper concerns the present well-known problems of complexity and unreliability in aviation electronics. It points out that the situation is unique in radio engineering and does not exist in other branches of engineering. It explains how this came about, points out that the demands for greater complexity will continue, and states that correction requires more than attention to such things as m... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the design, construction, and performance of a magnetic-recording drum time-delay system. The device, which has been developed for use in such acoustic studies as noise localization, reverberation analysis and others amenable to correlation techniques, utilizes conventional proportional recording. Two channels yield a relative time delay between their outputs which may be vari... View full abstract»

  • Backward-Wave Tubes

    It has been surmised for some time that a travelingwave tube in which backward-traveling field components can be excited-such as for instance the "Millman" tube-may oscillate in a backward mode, the RF power emerging at the gun-end of the tube and its frequency depending only on the beam voltage. Experiments with the "Millman" tube show this to be so and oscillations have been observed in the firs... View full abstract»

    Advantages of using precision quartz resonators in conjunction with frequency standard oscillators are explained. Advantages of locating the precision-resonators underearth are also described. A method of measuring resonator drift rate with sensitivity of the order of 2 parts in 1010 by means of a direct voltage instead of a high-stability variable oscillator is explained.

  • The Optimum DC Design of Flip-Flops

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1614 - 1617
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (666 KB)

    A method for the design of flip-flops has been described which includes component and voltage tolerances. The method may also be applied to the design of other similar switching circuits. The advantage of such methods is that designs meeting desired specifications may be obtained by a direct process rather than by one of trial and error. View full abstract»

  • Traveling-Wave Tube Helix Impedance

    The impedance parameter of a circular helix, from which the gain of a helix-type traveling wave amplifier is computed, is investigated for a "Tape-Helix" model. Results obtained in this paper indicate that the impedance has a smaller value than for the "Sheath-Helix" model, and is considerably reduced at larger values of ka, the ratio of the helix circumference to the free space wavelength. A tape... View full abstract»

  • Traveling-Wave Slot Antennas

    Publication Year: 1953, Page(s):1624 - 1631
    Cited by:  Papers (41)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1753 KB)

    The traveling-wave slot antenna is similar to a traveling-wave wire antenna, but it is far more versatile because the phase velocity and rate of radiation of the fields in the antenna can be controlled. Four types of traveling-wave slot antennas have been identified. These are: (a) the conventional transverse electric, TE (no tangential E field parallel to the slot length); (b) transverse magnetic... View full abstract»

    An approximate method has been developed for determining the shape and density of the spokes of electronic space charge when large RF potentials exist in the magnetron. With the estimation of space-charge configuration which this method makes possible, induced current theory and knowledge of the magnetron electrode geometry and external circuit can be applied to the calculation of frequency charac...

  • The Hyperbolic Transmission Line as a Matching Section

    A concentric matching section in which the characteristic impedance of the section varies along the section as a hyperbolic function provides a matching section which is relatively insensitive to frequency change. The performance of the line is described in terms of its reflection coefficient. Two lines are considered, one of which has a characteristic impedance which varies as a hyperbolic tangen...

  • Conformal Mappings for Filter Transfer Function Synthesis

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1605 KB)

    In a previous paper the author outlined a general method for synthesis of filter and amplifier transfer functions by setting up fictitious electrostatic problems. This paper shows that techniques utilizing conformal mappings provide practical ways for solving these electrostatic problems. Analysis in the mapped plane also yields convenient methods for predetermining the number of poles and zeros r... View full abstract»

  • A Method of Band-Pass Amplifier Alignment

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1494 KB)

    A method of alignment of band-pass amplifiers is discussed based on the oscilloscopic display of second order harmonic distortion as a function of the carrier frequency departure from the pass-band center. This method of alignment is thought particularly effective for band-pass amplifiers requiring high degree of linearity of transfer phase versus frequency function, such as for example, low-disto...

  • Excitation Coefficients and Beamwidths of Tschebyscheff Arrays

    In this paper, exact expressions are obtained for the excitation coefficients of a Tschebyscheff array by equating the array space factor to a Fourier series whose coefficients are readily calculated. A set of curves is presented showing half-power beam width versus antenna length for various side-lobe levels. An approximate though very accurate expression for the half-power beamwidth is derived.
