    Far-field pattern obtained from a helium/neon continuous-wave laser operating at 6328 angstrom units. Because the unaltered laser spot is small and bright, a lens was used to enlarge the beam and effectively reduce the intensity or energy density. The spot was magnified by passing the beam directly through a camera lens and onto a photographic plate. This photograph is from a paper “Interfe... View full abstract»

    Hysteresis. “The question of hysteresis is of very great importance from every point of view. We know that we can measure the amount of energy which a converter absorbs in a given time; and we can measure also the amount of energy that it delivers during the same interval. We have then to deal with the remainder of energy absorbed by the converter uselessly; and this is to be found, first, ... View full abstract»

    Chicago and NEC. Continuing its practice of occasionally meeting in coincidence with Regional activities, the IEEE Board of Directors met at National Electronics Conference time in Chicago this year. That organization again proved a capable host, although the time available for hospitality on a crowded agenda was not great. The NEC provided another view of the myriad interests and technical capabi... View full abstract»

    The pace of electrical development makes it difficult to realize that only a century has elapsed since publication of the laws of electromagnetic action by the genial Scotsman. Maxwell is linked with Newton and Darwin — a Cambridge triumvirate who fundamentally changed the world's concepts of physical reality James clerk maxwell was born on June 13, 1831, in Edinburgh into an upper-middle-c...

    The tunnel cathode is a promising development in the search for a cold emitter. Ideally, it should operate at high current densities, low cathode power, low noise, and at low temperatures. High-frequency modulation of emission is also possible A research effort has been under way in various countries in recent years, with regard to the development of electron emission from cold, solid-state device...

    It has been brought to the Editor's attention that the article "Adaptive Antenna Arrays" by R. W. Bickmore in the August 1964 issue of IEEE SPECTRUM was based in large measure on material written by D. L. Margerum for a forthcoming book. The Editor regrets that Mr. Margerum, his employer, and the publishers of the book did not receive proper credit, and is pleased to publish the following note fro... View full abstract»

    Many practical applications are predicted for superconducting dc motors and generators. This article presents the simple theory of operations and loss mechanisms of the dc generator, and discusses methods for minimizing these losses Most of today's superconducting dc generators were designed for energizing large superconducting electromagnet systems, for energizing multiple concentric-coil magnets...

    In which a system of logic in communications is evolved for the hierarchy echelons of large corporations, and wherein the digital computer plays vital parts — from executing the command decisions of the C-in-C to the robotlike obedience of a rear-rank private. Over the past few years the writers have been developing and perfecting a method for studying communication in large social organiza... View full abstract»
