    This paper deals primarily with the organization and management of large industrial research and development organizations. However, many of the techniques described are equally applicable to smaller organizations. The paper discusses the importance of building a high caliber scientific staff and then providing it with interesting research and development projects in the midst of a pleasant profes...

    This paper consists of two parts. The first part is tutorial and describes at an elementary level one of the contributions made by Darlington. This is the design theory of electrically symmetrical reactive (lossless) networks with particular attention to filters which exhibit Tchebycheff type performance in the pass and stop bands. The second part of the paper is the presentation, in "handbook" st... View full abstract»

  • A New Semiconductor Photocell Using Lateral Photoeffect

    The effect of illumination of a semiconductor junction is, as is well-known, a photovoltage between the two sides of the junction. In this article it will be shown that a nonuniform illuimination gives a lateral photovoltage parallel to the junction in addition to the (transverse) photovoltage mentioned above. A photocell will be described that uses the lateral effect and can detect the position o... View full abstract»

  • Design Considerations for Broad-Band Ferrite Coaxial Line Isolators

    An analysis of the microwave magnetic fields associated with a dominant TEM mode propagating in a coaxial line reveals only a linear sense of microwave H-vector polarization. As a consequence, this transmission line structure does not inherently lend itself for use with ferrites to obtain nonreciprocal propagation characteristics. A means for obtaining microwave H-vector circular polarization in c... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of Nonreciprocal Effects in an N-Wire, Ferrite-Loaded Transmission Line

    The N-wire rotationally symmetric transmission line surrounding a thin ferrite rod is analyzed here with the aim of determining the feasibility of this low-frequency nonreciprocal device. The structure is assumed to be infinitely long. The transmission line equations are solved in which the effect of mutual inductances and capacitances between wires and the perturbing effect of the ferrite are tak... View full abstract»

  • Backward-Wave Oscillator Experiments at 100 to 200 Kilomegacycles

    Electronically tunable oscillations were obtained at wavelengths between 3 and 1.5 millimeters in a demountable backward-wave oscillator whose circuit structure was a ridged waveguide with transverse slots in the broad wall. The slot arrays were formed by tapes wound on suitably dimensioned, interchangeable frames, each giving a tuning range of about 15 per cent. For electron beam velocities betwe... View full abstract»

  • Transistor Junction Temperature as a Function of Time

    Cited by:  Papers (18)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2203 KB)

    An analysis of the heat flow in transistors is presented which enables one to determine the variation of junction temperature with time for a given transistor excitation. A one-dimensional heat flow model is considered which is repsentative of grown-junction and some alloy transistors. The step and impulse temperature responses are obtained from the solution of the heat equation. A comparison made... View full abstract»

  • Shutter Image Converter Tubes

    This paper discusses recently developed shutter image converter tubes. Part I is concerned with electrostatically focused tubes while part II considers magnetically focused tubes. Both types employ a mesh spaced close to the cathode which can be used to control the passage of photoelectrons from cathode to phosphor layer (anode). The electron-optical theory is presented for both types of tubes and... View full abstract»

  • Minimizing Incidental Frequency Modulation in Amplitude-Modulated UHF Oscillators

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):524 - 530
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2136 KB)

    It is possible to minimize incidental fm in amplitudemodulated uhf oscillators. The frequency changes at uhf that occur over an amplitude-modulated cycle stem, primarily, from the variation of the transit time and space charge within the oscillator tube. By appropriate selection of parameters of the feedback and cathode lines a compensation is obtained for changes in cathode-to-grid transit time. ... View full abstract»

    The conditions leading to crystal deterioration and burnout in tr tubes, which exhibit apparent satisfactory leakage characteristics, are investigated experimentally. The characteristics of coaxial keep-alive structures are evaluated by monitoring with probes and light intensity measurements the residual electron density in the interaction gap spacing. The prime factor leading to crystal deteriora... View full abstract»
