    The first part of this review describes, in terms intended for the general reader, the physical basis of amorphous semiconductors and their use in switching devices. The second part is devoted to a more critical appraisal of current thinking on conduction and switching mechanisms and recent advances in the technology and applications of amorphous semiconductor devices.

    Two simple techniques are described for the design of recursive digital filters in the cascade configuration, which minimize the coefficient word-length. These are intended for cases where a statistical treatment is not valid because of the coarseness of quantization. The derivation of the discrete set of pole positions for the basic second-order section in the form of a z-plane pole grid is revie... View full abstract»

    Based on radiometeorological observations at 2 GHz and 120 MHz over two co-located transhorizon tropospheric propagation paths in Northern India during 1971, this paper describes the propagation characteristics and analyses the mechanisms of propagation at 2 GHz. Correlation of hourly median signal with refractivity gradient was found to be good while correlation with surface refractivity was much... View full abstract»

    An introduction to the effects of light on semiconductor devices and their use in testing integrated circuits is given. The possibilities are discussed of utilizing a focused laser beam as a minute, movable, non-destructive probe. This may be used to feed information into integrated circuits, to locate and simulate faults, and to shorten the time required to test these circuits. Experiments perfor... View full abstract»
