    This paper describes a pocket-size developmental AM broadcast receiver which utilizes eight junction transistors. Its performance is comparable to that of conventional personal receivers. Emphasis has been given to developments which contribute to stability with respect to temperature, battery voltage, and variations among transistors. The superheterodyne circuit employed uses a single-transistor ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an experimental automobile broadcast receiver utilizing nine experimental junction transistors in a superheterodyne circuit. The receiver operates directly from the six-volt storage battery without vibrator, power transformer, or rectifier. The average current drain, including that for two pilot lights, is approximately one-tenth that of a conventional automobile receiver. The... View full abstract»

  • A Graphical Sinusoidal Analysis of a Nonlinear RC Phase-Shift Feedback Circuit

    Publication Year: 1955 , Page(s): 679 - 684

    In certain nonlinear systems, a form of frequency response has been observed in which the peak is bent over to the right or left depending on the type of nonlinearity. It will be shown that a similar response may be obtained in the RC phase-shift feedback circuit by inserting a nonlinear resistor, such as a thyrite, in the feedback loop. This circuit is discussed with emphasis on a graphical sinus... View full abstract»

    The Pierce traveling-wave tube theory is modified to apply to the backward-wave oscillator. Theoretical dependence of both starting current and frequency upon space charge and circuit loss is calculated, as is the dependence of efficiency upon these parameters. Good experimental confirmation is obtained with two tubes, one of which was of adjustable length. Pushing, pulling, stability, frequency g... View full abstract»

    A simple double-doppler device is described which makes it possible to determine the direction of motion in addition to measuring velocity. The same principle can be employed to measure distances, temperature, or small frequency differences. In addition an application of the device for moving-target indication is described.

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2224 KB)  

    A crystal-controlled frequency standard having a frequency stability of a few parts in 1010 per day is described. The oscillator employs a 1-megacycle GT-cut crystal unit in a high-sensitivity bridge-balancing frequency-correction system. The crystal serves both as the resonant element for the oscilaltor and for a bridge whose unbalance is an indication of departure of the oscillator frequency fro... View full abstract»

  • An Inflection-Point Emission Test

    Publication Year: 1955 , Page(s): 707 - 711

    The paper describes a method by which the inflection-point-emission of an oxide-cathode tube may be indicated as a meter reading after subjecting the tube to a single triangular current pulse. The testing current rises from zero at a constant rate and the anode voltage is differentiated twice with respect to time. The time which elapses between the commencement of the test and the appearance of th... View full abstract»

  • X-Ray Emission from High-Voltage Hydrogen Thyratrons

    Publication Year: 1955 , Page(s): 711 - 715
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3256 KB)  

    In the operation of high-voltage hydrogen thyratrons, the bombardment of the anode by high-energy electrons causes the production of X-rays. The X-ray output of three types of high-voltage hydrogen thyratrons has been studied to determine the generation of X-rays as a function of the operating parameters. The beam pattern and the energy and intensity of the emitted X-rays are included. It has been... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of a Broadband Detector Circuit

    Publication Year: 1955 , Page(s): 715 - 720

    This paper presents a theoretical analysis of the steady-state behavior of an ideal linear detector with a broadband output circuit. Published analyses of a diode feeding a load resistance R1 shunted by a capacitance C1 show that detection efficiency D to the carrier frequency is a function of the ratio of R1 to the reactance of C1, or of R1C1 to 1/f, at the frequency of the applied signal, as wel...

  • The Excitation of Surface Waves by a Vertical Antenna

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2456 KB)  

    The excitation of surface waves by a vertical, linear antenna erected on an infinite, flat, perfectly conducting image plane coated with a thin layer of dielectric is investigated theoretically. Helmholtz-type integral expressions, derived through the use of the results of a previous paper, are utilized in the computation of numerical data. The appendix is devoted to the development of an approxim... View full abstract»

  • Coding for Constant-Data-Rate Systems-Part II Multiple-Error-Correcting Codes

    The study of coding for constant-data-rate systems begun in Part I is continued. A simple pulse model of such a system is introduced which is easier to visualize than the correlation detection scheme of Part I. The Wagner code is extended to two multipleerror-correcting schemes. The efficiency of the Wagner code is evaluated by comparing it with Shannon's ideal coding. It is shown that the Wagner ... View full abstract»

    The usefulness of exciting a single circularly-polarized mode in a microwave cavity is indicated. A matrix method is presented then for the analysis of the operation of various components, such as transition pieces and differential phase shifters on waves propagating in waveguides with two degenerate orthogonal modes. This method is applied to describe three distinct systems for generating the des... View full abstract»
