    A synthetic ruby crystal observed in cross section by laser interferometer techniques shows high contrast of optical fringes, also visible in the background. The 6-inch-long rod has a ½-inch diameter; it was inspected with a Perkin-Elmer instrument consisting of a gas laser that emits continuous coherent light at 6328 Å and a modified Twyman-Green interferometer. The instrument has e... View full abstract»

    Magnetism. “It has been found that the secondary current wave of a closed iron circuit induction coil or transformer, whose primary circuit receives alternating current, is lagged from its theoretical position of 90 degrees behind the primary wave, an additional 90 degrees, so that the phases of the two currents are directly opposed; or the secondary current, working lamps only in its circu...

    Invention of solid-state amplifier — In an article in the February issue of Physics Today, Professor Virgil E. Bottom calls attention to several patents of Julius E. Lilienfeld (recently deceased) relating to devices for “amplifying and controlling electric currents.” The remarkable thing about these patents is the dates — filed in 1926 and 1928 and issued in 1930ȁ...
