    All the parameters affecting the performance of a video recording system are critically considered and proposals are made for achieving the necessary quality of output with the tape speed reduced to 6 in/s for 2-in wide tape. The new standard calls for reducing head size, track widths and guard bands. Unwanted beat components in the f.m. system are reduced by adopting a super highband system with ... View full abstract»

  • Feedforwardߞan alternative approach to amplifier linearization

    Feedforward has largely been ignored as a circuit technique since feedback was introduced in the 1920s. Modern amplifiers can benefit from the application of feedforward as well as feedback and the principle can be applied to both h.f. and X-band amplifiers. The basic principles of feedforward are described and both equations and design curves are included. Two variants of the basic feedforward ar... View full abstract»

  • Scanning ferroelectric apertures

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):263 - 268

    To reduce the loss of an array due to the fixed element pattern and to reduce the grating-lobe problem for large steering angles, the use of. scanning ferroelectric apertures is proposed. The phase front and, as a result, the beam direction of a scanning ferroelectric element are determined by its permittivity controlled by the biasing voltage applied to it. The calculated angle of steering of a s... View full abstract»

  • The effect of deviation of feed polarization characteristics from that of a Huygens source on cross-polarization in reflector antennas

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):269 - 272

    The requirements for feed characteristics to give zero cross-polarization in reflector antennas are discussed. It is shown that equal E and H amplitude patterns is not a sufficient condition for zero cross-polarization. Effects of phase error due to feed are also discussed briefly. View full abstract»

  • A novel standing-wave indicator in microstrip

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):273 - 280

    Although there have been numerous applications for a standing-wave detector in microstrip for many years, there has until now been no clear idea as to how a reliable indicator could be built. This paper presents the practising engineer with a fixed probe/sliding load test instrument that has proved successful where travelling probe methods have failed. The circuit (or load) is printed on a very th... View full abstract»

  • A simplified model of the writing process in saturation magnetic recording

    Publication Year: 1974, Page(s):281 - 285
    Cited by:  Papers (14)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (739 KB)

    The writing process in saturation magnetic recording is analysed and a model is proposed which is sufficiently simple to enable the functional relationship of the various parameters to be identified. The predictions of the model are compared with experiment and good agreement is obtained. View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

Published from 1963 to February 1964 by the British Institution of Radio Engineers and from March 1964 to 1984 by the the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers, The Radio and Electronic Engineer published papers describing original research and development in all branches of electronic engineering, as well as critical and interpretive surveys. Short contributions dealing with device technology, circuit techniques and experimental methods were also included.
