    Experiments with high-speed boats at Gloucester, Mass, in 1910-12, resulted in sustained governmental interest in radiodynamic torpedoes from 1912 to 1931. This culminated in the successful radio control of the course of a modified standard naval torpedo throughout a 9000 yard run at an operating depth of 12 feet. Many developments by the Hammond Laboratory established basic principles used in mod... View full abstract»

  • Description and Operating Characteristics of the Platinotron-A New Microwave Tube Device

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):1209 - 1222

    The term "platinotron" is the nomenclature given to a class of tube which, in general, comprises a circular, but nonreentrant, dispersive network matched at both ends over the frequency region of interest, and a reentrant electron beam originating from a continuously or nearly continuously coated cathode coaxial to the network. A dc potential is applied between the cathode and anode and a magnetic... View full abstract»

  • The Role of Stratospheric Scattering in Radio Communication

    On the mixing-in-gradient hypothesis of incoherent scattering of radio waves in a dry atmosphere, the intensity of the irregularities in dielectric constant depends on the excess of the temperature gradient above that appropriate to an adiabatic atmosphere. In going from the upper troposphere to the stratosphere, there is a significant increase in this gradient excess and consequently, a significa... View full abstract»

  • Carrier Generation and Recombination in P-N Junctions and P-N Junction Characteristics

    For certain p-n junctions, it has been observed that the measured current-voltage characteristics deviate from the ideal case of the diffusion model. It is the purpose of this paper to show that the current due to generation and recombination of carriers from generation-recombination centers in the space charge region of a p-n junction accounts for the observed characteristics. This phenomenon dom... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a technique for improving the performance of digital feedback control systems and operational digital simulators by making use of the computer to perform information programming or data processing. The system stability can be improved and the system error can be reduced by digital programng of the input and error signals together with digital correction computations. This tech...

  • Posicast Control of Damped Oscillatory Systems

    A novel method is presented for producing dead-bea response in a lightly-damped oscillatory feedback system. Complete transient response times of the order of a fraction of the natural oscillatory period can be obtained. Excellent waveshape reproduction is achieved through a linear phase lag with frequency. The method consists of exciting several transient oscillations, at closely spaced times, wi... View full abstract»

  • Synchronization of Oscillators by Periodically Interrupted Waves

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):1256 - 1268
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    This paper describes the principles, methods, circuit applications, and the theoretical basis of the synchronization of LC oscillators by interrupted wave trains. The synchronizing process is shown to depend upon the transient behavior of the phase angle between two vectors which represent, respectively, the instantaneous voltage of the oscillator and the corresponding instantaneous voltage of the...

    The electrical parameters (barrier resistance, barrier capacity, and spreading resistance) of a crystal diode are quantitatively related to its fundamental physical properties and geometrical construction. The effects of these parameters on conversion loss at uhf and microwave frequencies are discussed, with particular reference to diodes made from n-type germanium and p-type silicon. Semiconducto...
