    Man's escape from the confines of his planet offers him revolutionary opportunities for performing whole new ranges of scientific experiments, notably in such fields as astronomy, physics and geophysics. Electronics, because it provides the vital nerve system for such experiments, will be at the very center of these new exploits in space. Moreover, earth satellites, possibly in a 24-hour equatoria...

    This paper treats in terms of the special theory of relativity: a "clock paradox" involving the fact that the frequency of an atomic oscillator on a moving body is lowered but the mass which is converted into radiation is increased; the case of the twin who goes on a space trip at near-light speed and returns younger than his brother on earth; the shift in frequency in the presence of a gravitatio...

  • A Maser Amplifier for Radio Astronomy at X-Band

    The design and operating characteristics of a maser radiometer for use in radio astronomy at 3-cm wavelength are discussed. The operating system which is described has a bandwidth of 5.5 mc and an input noise temperature, including background radiation into the antenna, of about 85°K. An rms fluctuation level of about 0.04°K is attained using an averaging time of 5 seconds. A discussion of the f... View full abstract»

  • Tantalum Printed Capacitors

    It has previously been considered either impossible or impractical to make tantalum oxide capacitors by applying a metal counter electrode directly to a tantalum oxide film. Attempts in this direction have led to either direct shorts or low breakdown strength. For this reason, it has been presumed that it was essential to use either an electrolyte or a semiconductor in the cathode structure. Using... View full abstract»

    This paper provides analyses of three types of diversity combining systems in practical use. These are: selection diversity, maximal-ratio diversity, and equal-gain diversity systems. Quantitative measures of the relative performance (under realistic conditions) of the three systems are provided. The effects of various departures from ideal conditions, such as non-Rayleigh fading and partially coh... View full abstract»

  • Physical Principles of Avalanche Transistor Pulse Circuits

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):1102 - 1108
    Cited by:  Papers (23)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1829 KB)

    A simple physical theory is developed which permits a calculation of the significant points of avalanche transistor transient behavior. A model for the transistor is defined in terms of charge variables and the physical parameters of the device. The transient performance of the model is calculated by focusing attention on the minority carrier charge stored in the base region and the influence of b... View full abstract»

  • Pulse Amplification Using Impact Ionization in Germanium

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3930 KB)

    Some aspects of the phenomena of impact ionization in an impurity doped semiconductor at 4.2°K are described. The ionization time is shown to be a strong inverse function of the electric field. Control of the breakdown process is used to obtain pulse amplification in the millimicrosecond range, using two- and three-terminal devices. These devices are inherently stable, very simply constructed (re... View full abstract»

  • The Transpolarizer: An Electrostatically Controlled Circuit Impedance with Stored Setting

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):1117 - 1123
    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2670 KB)

    This new device operates by the controlled transfer of polarization through two or more ferroelectric dielectric sections in series and therefore is named "transpolarizer." It represents a new basic means for storing and gating electrical signals and, in general, means to control circuit impedance in any predetermined manner according to a stored setting. The operation of a two section transpolari... View full abstract»

  • Geometric-Analytic Theory of Transition in Electrical Engineering

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):1124 - 1129
    Cited by:  Patents (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1542 KB)

    A geometric-analytic theory of transition is presented and applied to circuit theory. A transition from one state to another is represented in a complex plane by two points which, by variation of a parameter, approach each other, coalesce, and then separate along trajectories perpendicular to the original trajectories. Three analogous cases are treated, namely 1) Movements of fixed points in the c... View full abstract»

  • A Phenomenological Theory of the Reggia-Spencer Phase Shifter

    Cited by:  Papers (30)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2474 KB)

    The novel ferrite-actuated variable phase shifter reported by F. Reggia and E. G. Spencer operates on a principle which, while resembling that of the familiar Faraday rotation devices, differs from them in a way which leads to quite different and unexpected behavior. The observed properties of the device depend on the interaction between the radiation and the ferrite taking place under several spe... View full abstract»

  • A New Look at the Phase-Locked Oscillator

    The uses of phase-locked oscillators are briefly reviewed. A simple automatic-phase-control (APC) system is analyzed as a servomechanism analog. Three major characteristics of the system are considered: the lock range, the capture range, and the filter bandwidth. The lock range is the total drift in the unlocked oscillator frequency which can be exactly compensated by the locked system. The captur... View full abstract»
