    This paper summarizes briefly the chronology of the development of parametric transducers. The early works of Michael Faraday (1831), F. Melde (1859), and Lord Rayleigh (1883) are cited as mechanical examples and the pioneering work of L. Kÿhn, J. Zenneck, E. F. W. Alexanderson and R. V. L. Hartley are cited as electrical examples. A very brief résumé of selected contributions follows, dating f... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the use of the new tunnel diode in a down converter. An experimental UHF circuit converting from a signal frequency of 210 mc to an intermediate frequency of 30 mc is used to illustrate the feasibility of this new converter. Conversion power gain of 22 db with less than 3 db noise has been achieved with gallium arsenide diodes. The circuit analysis proceeds from the basic nonl... View full abstract»

    A theoretical derivation, verified by experiment, shows that the maximum visible line number of a displayed bar pattern is directly proportional to the signal-to-white-noise ratio. The constant of proportionality and the effect of finite screen boundaries have been experimentally determined. It is found both theoretically and experimentally that the masking effect of white noise depends only on th... View full abstract»

    A low-noise tunable L-band maser system is described. The maser uses a pink ruby crystal oriented at 90° and is tunable from 850 to 2000 mc. The voltage-gain bandwidth product is as high as 37.5 mc at a liquid helium bath temperature of 1.5°K. An L-band circulator has been developed for use with the maser. It has an insertion loss of 0.3 db, operates over a 200-mc frequency range at L-band, and ... View full abstract»

    The experimental evaluation of cadmium sulfide field effect transistors indicates that, although the material does not compete with germanium for general transistor application, useful power gain was achieved and certain advantages exist for CdS in phototransistor applications. Many unique circuit functions can be performed by the device. The active electronic properties vary greatly with the inte... View full abstract»

  • The Optimum Formula for the Gain of a Flow Graph or a Simple Derivation of Coates' Formula

    Cited by:  Papers (36)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1036 KB)

    Starting from the definition of a determinant and using a few of its elementary properties, this paper gives an independent derivation of the optimum formula for the gain of a flow graph. Thus, a simpler path is shown to Coates' important result. This paper is self-contained, so that no previous knowledge of flow graphs is required. For motivation, the reader is referred to some well kmown papers ... View full abstract»

  • A Broad-Band Cyclotron Resonance RF Detector Tube

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):890 - 897
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2340 KB)

    A tube is described which utilizes the cyclotron motion of electrons to provide a resonant system which is tuned by variation of the magnetic flux density. The amplitude of the cyclotron motion depends upon the relationship of the applied signal frequency and the electron cyclotron frequency; at resonance, the amplitude is maximum. Resonance is detected by shooting the spiraling electrons through ... View full abstract»

  • Anomalies in the Absorption of Radio Waves by Atmospheric Gases

    This paper summarizes recent measurements of the attenuation of radio waves by atmospheric gases and compares the measured losses with those predicted by Van Vleck. Reasonably good agreement has been noted between the predicted and measured losses for oxygen, but the measured loss for water vapor is considerably in excess of that predicted. Various factors which may influence this discrepancy are ... View full abstract»

    The perturbation in the complex propagation constant of a lossy, nonreciprocal, periodic waveguide produced by the insertion of a rod, which may be cylindrical or periodic, parallel to the waveguide axis is developed. The application to the experimental determination of the interaction impedance and electromagnetic field distribution of waveguides is presented, together with the approximations whi...

  • Taylor-Cauchy Transforms for Analysis of a Class of Nonlinear Systems

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):912 - 922
    Cited by:  Papers (13)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1420 KB)

    This paper presents a new transform calculus for analyzing a certain class of nonlinear systems. The method, which can be justified rigorously by the partition theory, essentially transforms a nonlinear differential equation having certain conditions imposed on its linear, nonlinear, and driving terms into an algebraic equation. The latter is easily solved recursively owing to its symmetry and con... View full abstract»

  • Laurent-Cauchy Transforms for Analysis of Linear Systems Described by Differential-Difference and Sum Equations

    The Taylor-Cauchy transform for the analysis of nonlinear systems was presented at the 1959 IRE National Convention. In this paper it is shown that the Laurent-Cauchy transform can be derived from the Taylor-Cauchy transform by a simple mapping. Whereas a complex ¿ plane is used in the Taylor-Cauchy transform, a complex ¿ plane is used in the Laurent-Cauchy trans-form where the two complex varia... View full abstract»
