    A number of new techniques for detecting signals at centimeter and shorter wavelengths are making possible far better noise performance than ever before attainable. Over the past ten years, noise temperatures have been reduced from around 3,000°K to less than 5°K. The low-noise devices which are currently competitive or which show future promise include traveling-wave tubes, parametric amplifier... View full abstract»

    Einstein's general theory of relativity is broken down and simplified under limitations usually satisfied in experimentally realizable situations. Following the work of Mÿller,1 an analogy between electromagnetism and gravitation is presented which allows calculation of various gravitational forces by considering the equivalent electromagnetic problem. A number of examples are included. Tensor fo... View full abstract»

  • A Matched Amplifier Using Two Cascaded Esaki Diodes

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s):904 - 906

    The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new type of circuit for matched amplification using negative resistance devices. This circuit consists of a quarter-wave transmission line section whose input and output are paralleled by negative conductances. The characteristics of such an amplifier are discussed, and an expression for its noise figure is derived. The development of a 30-Mc amplifier u... View full abstract»

    The development of new solid-state active elements, such as variable-capacitor diodes and tunnel diodes, has stimulated the network theorist to consider the negative resistor as an additional basic circuit element to be included in problems of linear network analysis and synthesis. In this paper it is first shown that if the negative resistor is added to the usual set of lumped passive building bl... View full abstract»

  • Fluctuation Noise in Semiconductor Space-Charge Regions

    In addition to noise arising from the circuit, a semiconductor diodic junction must contain a basic noise source. This basic noise mechanism is due to fluctuations in the ionization state of the impurity atoms which occur at random relative to the probability of ionization, w=nD+/nD. In an n-type semiconductor, a neutral impurity that suddenly becomes ionized releases a mobile electron whose movem... View full abstract»

  • Electrodeless Measurement of Semiconductor Resistivity at Microwave Frequencies

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1001 KB)

    A new microwave technique for the measurement of conductivity of semiconductors has been explored and provides agreement with more conventional methods. The proposed technique depends upon the absorption of the microwave power being propagated through a semiconductor medium. This eliminates the need for electrode attachment, making the experimental aspects of the measurement more simple. In additi... View full abstract»

  • Accuracy and Limitations of the Resistor Network Used for Solving Laplace's and Poisson's Equations

    Cited by:  Papers (17)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2105 KB)

    A resistor network developed for the solution of electron-optical problems is described. New, improved methods for simulating arbitrary boundary conditions with high accuracy are given. The sources of error are discussed. The error is defined by the dislocation of an equipotential, as determined with the network, from its correct position. It is measured in units of the distance between two nodes ... View full abstract»

  • Optimum Capacitor Charging Efficiency for Space Systems

    In space systems the efficient utilization of energy can be critical. Many pulsed-operation devices, e.g., a plasma engine, involve charging a capacitor bank C periodically. The efficiency of energy transfer ¿ to an initially uncharged bank when a dc-source voltage is applied through a resistance R, with inductance L assumed zero, is limited to 50 per cent even if R varies arbitrarily during the ...

  • A Gas-Discharge Microwave Power Coupler

    Publication Year: 1961, Page(s):949 - 956
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2278 KB)

    A simple gas-discharge microwave power coupler consists of a cavity supporting two resonant modes at the same frequency, a gas discharge symmetrically located in the cavity with respect to each mode, and a magnetic field arranged to be perpendicular mutually to the electric fields of both modes in the region of the discharge. Power is coupled between modes by the interaction of the electrons with ... View full abstract»
