    The luminance detail rendition, obtained from a color television signal in which the high-frequency components of the luminance signal are formed in the same way as the lows, is not correct in two respects: (1) The luminance transition amplitude is nearly always reproduced with incorrect amplitude, and (2) the transition is in a dark surround. This paper explains the cause of these two defects and... View full abstract»

  • The Design of Stagger-Tuned Double-Tuned Amplifiers for Arbitrarily Large Bandwidth

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):923 - 931
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1847 KB)

    Double-tuned amplifier stages have a greater gain-bandwidth factor than single-tuned stages, and by stagger-tuning the double-tuned stages the gain-bandwidth factor is better preserved as stages are cascaded than if identical stages were used. This paper presents the results of a study which has yielded accurate design curves for the wide-band case permitting straightforward synthesis of maximally... View full abstract»

    A set of curves is presented which makes it relatively easy to design air-core transformers satisfying a majority of engineering needs. Inductances in the range 0.1 ¿h to 10 mh, coupling coefficients in the range 0.001 to 1.0, and inductance ratios up to 100:1 are covered directly. Certain arbitrary restrictions are placed upon the proportions in order to obtain a single set of charts, but the av... View full abstract»

    The electron transmission through the parallax masks of present-day tricolor tubes is about 12 per cent, thus placing a limit on picture brightness. This paper describes a new tube employing a parallax mask maintained at a potential much lower than that of the screen and a collector mesh maintained at anode potential intermediate to the screen and mask potentials; the brightness of the tube is inc...

  • Design of Lens-Mask Three-Gun Color Television Tubes

    This paper discusses a modification of the shadow-mask three-gun color television tube. By applying an electron accelerating field between the mask and the fluorescent screen, the mask apertures act as individual electron lenses causing the individual electron beams to converge. This permits the apertures to be increased in area resulting in improved utilization of the electron beam current and re... View full abstract»

  • The Radio Frequency Coaxial Resistor Using a Tractorial Jacket

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):951 - 960
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2362 KB)

    Radio frequency coaxial resistors are usually fitted with an exponential jacket, whose design is based on an approximation by a cylindrical transmission line. This approach is not consistent with the actual field distribution in the termination. An approximation which is more appropriate is a conical line, leading to a tractorial jacket. An analysis of this profile is given. It is shown that in th... View full abstract»

  • A Time-Sampling and Amplitude-Quantizing Tube

    The possibility of a saving of bandwidth- or of transmitting additional information in a given bandwidth-by means of amplitude quantizing and time sampling is reviewed. The requirements on a tube to simultaneously time sample and quantize a video input, and to produce a residue output, are outlined. Beam deflection-type tubes were successfully built and tested which perform all of these functions.... View full abstract»

  • Noise Power Radiated by Tropical Thunderstorms

    The common types of tropical thunderstorms are described. A synthesis is made of the available information on the subject. Hence, the essential peculiarities and electrical parameters of typical lightning discharges are deduced. These are utilized to explain the radiation that appears as radio noise. An expression is deduced for the average electric field due to a stroke in a flash. This is used t... View full abstract»

  • Rotatable Inductive Probe in Waveguides

    It is shown by calculation of the field distribution in waveguides with TE waves in the presence of both the forward and the reflected waves that the voltage induced in a pure inductive probe depends on its angular position in the same manner that a probe in a slotted line depends on its axial position. Thus, a rotatable probe consisting of a wire loop and a compensating arrangement extending thro... View full abstract»

  • The Minimum Noise Figure of Microwave Beam Amplifiers

    A matrix description of microwave amplifiers such as klystrons, traveling-wave tubes, and backward-wave amplifiers, in which an electron beam interacts with longitudinal RF fields, is developed. Certain relations between the matrix elements are derived as a consequence of the conservation of energy and these relations set a lower limit to the noise figure attainable with amplifiers of this class. ...

    This paper deals with the formation of low-frequency rectangular pulses from a train of higher-frequency pulses, using a pulse-coincidence type of frequency-dividing chain. The developed pulse has leading and trailing edges bearing a precise time relationship to the leading edges of pulses of the original train, and a width equal to the period of an integral number of these pulses. A second low-fr... View full abstract»

  • Microwave Detection in a Thermionic Diode

    A theoretical analysis of the detection of microwave energy in a thermionic diode is presented assuming a parabolic space-charge potential distribution and that the resultant field acting on the electron is the sum of the static and radio-frequency fields. It is shown that at microwave frequencies the space-charge-limited diode behaves as a velocity-modulated detector. This solution is a valid app... View full abstract»

  • Unilateralization of Junction-Transistor Amplifiers at High Frequencies

    Cited by:  Papers (7)

    In designing an amplifier with a bilateral device, unilateralization is one approach which permits use of techniques already developed for unilateral devices, in particular vacuum tubes. A general method for deriving a unilateral circuit based on an equivalent circuit of the device is described, emphasis being placed on junction transistors operating at high frequencies. The principle is: applicat... View full abstract»
