    Johnson noise is caused by the fluctuation of charges or polarizable molecules in lossy materials. Its magnitude can best be calculated by means of statistical mechanics, which tells us that each degree of freedom must have associated with it an energy of ½ kT. This leads to the usual expressions for Johnson noise, including the fact that the available thermal noise power, from a resistor,... View full abstract»

    A tutorial exposition is given of various analytical concepts and techniques of proved value in calculating the response of electrical systems to noise waves. The relevant probability theory is reviewed with illustrative examples. Topics from statistics discussed include probability density, moments, stationary and ergodic processes, characteristic functions, semi-invariants, the central limit the... View full abstract»

    After some general remarks regarding the proper place of transient techniques in the field of video measurements, suitable waveforms and equipment are described. Methods of measurement and evaluation of response curves are discussed. An attempt is made to estimate the effect of small variations in the transfer function on the transient response. A tentative list of criteria is prepared which, thou... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the problems involved in designing traveling-wave tubes in the range of pulsed powers of the order of a megawatt. Suitable circuits are described, together with their advantages and limitations. In general, the all-metal structures described are capable of dissipating high average powers, have good impedances at the required voltages (100-kv range), but at a sacrifice in bandw...

    Electrostatic deflection from a common center is possible by the use of electrostatic yokes, or Deflectrons. These consist of a 4-terminal pattern, printed on the inside of glass cylinders or cones. An analysis of the pattern geometry is presented which gives simple expressions for deflection factor of electrostatic yokes. The theory also accounts for a small residual noncircularity of scan, and g... View full abstract»

    Feedthrough capacitors built of a multiplicity of stacked disks are practically useless filter elements because they behave essentially like tubular feedthrough capacitors, namely exhibiting pronounced parallel resonances. However, if washers of suitable, lossy ferrite are interspaced in the structure, the effective coupling impedance for the lower frequencies is identical with the 1/ωC, w... View full abstract»
