    The direct conversion of heat into useful electrical work without utilization of moving mechanical parts has been successfully achieved in a novel device called the thermoelectron engine. This device is a heat engine in the thermodynamic sense because the working fluid, an electron gas, receives heat at a high temperature, rejects heat at a lower temperature, and delivers useful electrical work to...

    Observations during the last days of Sputnik I's orbiting are presented. These observations were made at The Ohio State University Radio Observatory using a simple CW reflection technique. The data suggest that the breakup of an artificial satellite upon its reentry into the denser atmosphere is a complex phenomenon in which a sequential series of events may occur over a period of days. Graphs of ... View full abstract»

    This paper contains a theoretical treatment of noise in maser amplifiers and the results of experimental measurements of the noise of an ammonia beam maser. The concept of "effective input noise temperature" is defined and used. The theoretical treatment obtains an equivalent microwave circuit and derives expressions for the gain and effective input noise temperature of both reflection and transmi... View full abstract»

  • The Spherical Coil as an Inductor, Shield, or Antenna

    The spherical coil is an idealized form of inductor having, on a spherical surface, a single-layer winding of constant axial pitch. Its magnetic field inside is uniform and outside is that of a small coil or magnetic dipole. Its properties exemplify exactly some of the rules that are approximately applicable to practical inductors. Simple formulas are given for self-inductance, mutual inductance, ... View full abstract»

  • Error Probabilities for Binary Symmetric Ideal Reception through Nonselective Slow Fading and Noise

    One of two correlated, equal energy, equiprobable waveforms is transmitted through a channel during a given time interval. The signal is corrupted in the channel by slowly-varying, frequency-nonselective fading and by additive, Gaussian noise. On reception, the corrupted signal is processed by an ideal receiver, which guesses that the transmitted waveform was the one which it computes to be a post... View full abstract»

  • Diffraction by Smooth Cylindrical Mountains

    This paper is a contribution to the problem of diffraction of EM waves by the smooth crest of a perfectly reflecting mountain. Model experiments at K-band frequencies with mountains of various radii of curvature have been made. The results are compared to an improved Fresnel theory where the reflections of the waves at the surface of the cylinder near its crest are taken into consideration and a c... View full abstract»

  • Refraction Anomalies in Airborne Propagation

    Propagation at 250-10,000 mc often encounters: 1) dense fadings where the radio signal fluctuates spatially with large amplitudes and small spacings from maxima to minima, e.g. amplitudes of up to 40 db and spacings at 3000 mc of 1 mile; 2) radio holes, where the signal falls spatially to a level often 15 db or more below the levels outside; 3) antiholes, where the signal fluctuates spatially with...

    The well-known effect of full shot noise of current saturated parts of a cathode and shot-noise suppression under spacecharge-limited conditions is shown to be very useful for evaluation of cathode quality. A test equipment and a practical test performance are described. Test results and their comparison to other methods of cathode evaluation demonstrate the high sensitivity of the proposed test. ...
