    The electronics industry has experienced four major periods of development: the radio era, the radar era, the television era, and the missile era. The radio and television eras, both being consumer-goods eras, were strongly influenced by the economic climate and by certian contractual arrangements peculiar to the electronics industry, whereas the radar and missile eras were dominated by factors re...

    This paper is a review of thermoelectric effects in solids, with emphasis on the practical application of these effects. The basic principles of thermoelectricity are reviewed, the present status of the problem and recent achievements are outlined in terms of specific practical applications, and the present status of the more detailed theoretical treatments is discussed in a nonmathematical fashio...

  • A Communication Technique for Multipath Channels

    Application of principles of statistical communication theory has led to a new communication system, called Rake, designed expressly to work against the combination of random multipath and additive noise disturbances. By coding the Mark-Space sequence of symbols to be transmitted into a wide-band signal, it becomes possible at the receiver to isolate those portions of the transmitted signal arrivi...

    An investigation of noise reduction in backwardwave amplifiers has yielded two significant results. 1) This type of amplifier has been demonstrated to be capable of very-low noise figures and therefore constitutes an entirely new class of microwave receiver tubes. Tube noise figures less than 6 db for a 25 per cent tuning range and less than 4.5 db for a 10 per cent tuning range of the amplifier's... View full abstract»

  • Atmospheric Noise Interference to Short-Wave Broadcasting

    In order to determine the different parameters necessary for assessing the interfering effect of atmospheric noise to short-wave broadcasting, a systematic physical analysis is made of how the atmospheric noise impulse, as heard by the ear, arises and how it causes annoyance to the listener of broadcast programs. Hence, criteria are developed both for measurement and estimation of atmospheric nois... View full abstract»

  • Theory of Junction Diode and Junction Transistor Noise

    A. van der Ziel has given formulas for shot noise in junction diodes and junction transistors for transistors in which: 1) All current is carried by one type of carrier. 2) The carrier flow is one-dimensional. 3) The recombination is by volume recombination. These equations are here proved with the help of a corpuscular approach without any significant restrictions except that the individual holes... View full abstract»

  • Ferrite Microwave Detector

    In treating the behavior of the magnetic moments of unbalanced electron spins in ferromagnetic materials under the action of an rf field, second-order terms in the alternating components are usually neglected. It is shown here that retention of certain second-order terms for one component of the magnetization predicts the possibility of using ferrites to detect an amplitude-modulated microwave sig...

  • The Effects of Short Duration Neutron Radiation on Semiconductor Devices

    Transistors, semiconductor diodes, and solid-electrolyte batteries were exposed to short duration, high-intensity neutron radiation from a U-235 critical assembly which was primarily a neutron source. The effect on these components was ascertained by comparing their principal parameters before and after exposure, and in several cases units of operating equipment utilizing these components were mon...

  • Optimum Filters with Monotonic Response

    A class of filters is developed whose amplitude characteristic has no ripple in the pass band and a high rate of attenuation in the stop band; thus it combines the desirable features of the Butterworth and Tchebycheff response. Among all filters of a given order this new class has the maximum cutoff rate under the condition of a monotonically decreasing response. View full abstract»
