    As part of a program for the production of accurate scales and grids it became necessary to develop a device which could locate the lines on such a scale or grid with a precision better than one microinch. The system described in this paper accomplishes this result by forming an image of the line with polarized light whose angle of polarization varies with the position of the line. The angle is ze...

    The Hall effect can be employed to obtain an output proportional to the product of the current through the element and the field cutting through it. A qualitative explanation aids in the visualization of the phenomena. There are several semiconductor materials that may be selected to emphasize a particular characteristic such as power transfer, temperature stability, etc. Maximum efficiency and im...

    The current intensive effort on fuel cell research and development is justified by the potential uses and advantages. Many industrial laboratories are investigating some form of mobile power in which high efficiency, low manufacturing cost, and low maintenance are the most important factors. Another potential large application for fuel cells and the one that is receiving the most attention at this... View full abstract»

    Magnetohydrodynamic power generation has been presented as limited in application to large generating stations but offering the promise of reduced power cost to be achieved through heat rate improvement. The potential for industrial application will be broadened if generators can be made attractive in smaller ratings, if generating cost can be reduced, and if the generator can be made lighter and ...

    The requirement for new and better connecting techniques in the assembly of telephone apparatus has promoted increased use of welding. A low-voltage percussion welding process has been developed to a stage of reliability and quality which makes its utilization attractive for selected applications. The process is a direct capacitor discharge arc method in which the weld energy is closely controlled... View full abstract»

    A technique for the practical utilization of solar energy on a continuous basis to provide bulk power is described. The output of solar energy converters is used to produce hydrogen by pressure electrolysis of water. The energy stored in the hydrogen can be efficiently transformed into electrical energy by the use of hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells. View full abstract»
