    In the past two years or so, significant gains have been made in cryogenic array technology and also in the necessary support areas. This survey reviews the problems peculiar to array fabrication, cites experimental evidence of recent progress, and attempts to project the likelihood of the emergence of various cryoelectronic data-processing systems. The approach is through a review of basic charac... View full abstract»

    Devices dependent upon such results of quantization as plasmas, semiconduction, or individual energy-level transitions now occupy a diverse and important position within the broad scope of electrical engineering. Their further development requires a thorough understanding of quantum theory on the part of device research and development engineers. To meet this need, many departments of electrical e...

  • World War II radar The yellow-green eye

    By the beginning of World War II (1939), the German navy had developed a radar fire-control system1 that worked fairly efficiently, although its directional accuracy was still inadequate for night firing. Further effort was concentrated, in 1940, to overcome this deficiency. In England, the first radar sets employed wave-lengths of 11 to 12 meters, but continuous exreimentation with shorter wavele...

    A historian of the technology reviews the beginnings and changing meanings of the term ``electronics.'' He points out that it goes back to the adjective ``electronic,'' and even further to the name ``electron,'' which was first proposed in 1891. In its modern context, the origin of the word ``electronics'' has been ascribed to the first appearance of the magazine of that name, in 1930, although th... View full abstract»
