    Some of the long-range implications and advantages of achieving the production of power from controlled fusion reactions between isotopes of hydrogen, helium, and lithium are set forth. The physical conditions which seemingly must be established to accomplish this are presented. These are shown to lead to a situation in which the fusion fuel will exist in the form of a very hot, tenuous, fully ion... View full abstract»

    With the advent of color television the need for extreme linearity of over-all systems has become apparent. The general problem of the measurement and specification of nonlinear characteristics in television is considered. A function, called the gradient gain of a system, is presented. At a point in the picture for which the gradient gain is positive there is an enhancement (expansion) of the tone... View full abstract»

  • Transient Analysis of Coaxial Cables Considering Skin Effect

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1521 KB)

    A transient analysis of coaxial cables is made by considering the skin effect of the center conductor as the distorting element. Generalized curves are presented by which the response of any length of coaxial cable can be predicted if one point on the attenuation vs frequency curve is known. An experimental check on the analysis is made by comparing measurements and prediction of the responses of ... View full abstract»

  • The Serrodyne Frequency Translator

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):175 - 186
    Cited by:  Papers (32)  |  Patents (9)

    A serrodyne frequency translator will translate, or shift, the frequency of a signal in a nearly ideal manner. Linear sawtooth modulation of a transit-time device, such as a traveling-wave tube or klystron, is employed to effect the translation. The power output at the translated frequency is practically equal to the capability of the same device operating as an ordinary amplifier. Furthermore, ve... View full abstract»

  • Direct-Coupled-Resonator Filters

    Cited by:  Papers (289)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1982 KB)

    A new analysis is given of direct-coupled-resonator filters that results in excellent response at much greater bandwidths than has previously been possible. The method relies on the fact that the coupling elements can be made into perfect impedance inverters, or "quarter-wave" transformers, by the addition of negative elements in lumped-constant circuits, or of short negative lengths of line in wa...

  • Distributed-Parameter Variable Delay Lines Using Skewed Turns for Delay Equalization

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):196 - 204
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4061 KB)

    Delay equalization of distributed-parameter delay lines is accomplished by a new method making use of skewed turns in the winding. A simple analysis of the basis for the use of this method of equalization is given, and the performance of experimental variable delay lines is discussed. A brief survey of the artificial-line delay-equalization problem is given with a discussion of some of the alterna... View full abstract»

  • Microwave Power Measurements Employing Electron Beam Techniques

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):205 - 211
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2102 KB)

    A new electron beam technique for measuring microwave power flow, either cw or pulse, in waveguides is described. This technique consists of accelerating an electron beam transversely through an evacuated section of waveguide carrying power in the TE10 mode. The transit time of the electrons is adjusted to a value which gives maximum interaction of the field in the guide with the electrons, i.e., ... View full abstract»

  • VHF Pulse Techniques and Logical Circuitry

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2896 KB)

    Techniques and components for use in systems handling pulses of 10-millimicrosecond width have been investigated. Bandwidth requirements have led to the use of secondary emission pentodes in amplifier service. The limitations of time delay in feedback type circuitry have made necessary the use of special logical reshaping circuits. A test program on commercially available semiconductor diodes resu...

  • Back-Scattering Characteristics of the Sea in the Region from 10 to 50 KMC

    Measurements of radiation back scattering from the ocean have been made over the frequency range from 10 to 50 kmc by means of several cw, Doppler, micro¿ave systems operating simultaneously. The systems were mounted on the bow of a ship and various antenna depression angles from 0° (horizontal) to 90° were used. Data were obtained for vertical, horizontal, and circular polarization, and for th... View full abstract»

  • Radar Terrain Return at Near-Vertical Incidence

    Measurements have demonstrated that, with occasional exceptions, radar return from the ground is largely due to area scatter, even at angles of incidence near the vertical. An expression is derived here for a power superposition integral expressing the mean pulse envelope for the pulse returned from the ground to a radar. This integral is the convolution of the transmitted pulse form in power unit... View full abstract»

  • Operation of a Cold Cathode Gas Triode in a High Impedance Self-Biasing Circuit

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):239 - 242
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (784 KB)

    It has been found that when a cold cathode gas triode operates in a high impedance grid circuit in the absence of light or any other external radiation, these tubes have a tendency to fire without any triggering signal applied. This unsatisfactory operation is shown to be a function of the rate of rise of voltage and the time delays found in the breakdown of gaseous discharges. It is further shown... View full abstract»
