    The theory of the parametric amplifier has been reformulated to permit the prediction of noise temperature and pump power in terms of the physical parameters of the nonlinear element and circuit. The results of this analysis are supported by careful experiments at S-band using a gold-bonded germanium semiconductor diode. They can be summarized as follows. 1) Performance of a parametric amplifier u... View full abstract»

  • Theory of Single-Resonance Parametric Amplifiers

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):1227 - 1232

    A parametric amplifier that supports a resonance at the idler frequency only is capable of unlimited gain when operated either as a straight-through amplifier or as a lower-sideband up-converter. In the latter case, the idler frequency becomes the output frequency. The analysis of the single-resonance parametric amplifier consists of determining the stability criteria and power gains associated wi... View full abstract»

    The basic components of a Persistor memory element are a superconducting inductor in parallel with a switch element which is normally superconducting, but which becomes resistive when the current exceeds a critical value. When a suitable current pulse is applied to a Persistor memory element, a persistent circulating current is stored. A second pulse in the same direction as the first makes no cha...

    Cited by:  Papers (240)  |  Patents (8)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3803 KB)

    Seven factors limiting the performance of photovoltaic solar energy converters are listed and explained. They can be classified into basic and technology determined limitations. Possibilities for improvement on technology determined limitations are investigated for the silicon solar cell. Such possibilities are: heavier p-layer doping; change of geometry, possibly by application of grid structures... View full abstract»

    With a new class of switching devices employing microwave tube elements, appropriate combinations of particular components can create a variety of devices that are capable of performing switching and logic at extremely high speeds (one operation per m¿sec or less). Such speeds represent a large step forward in the computer art. A preliminary device described herein demonstrated the ability of a m... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the theory of skin effect in semiconductor materials including the effect of displacement currents, which are generally neglected in the skin-effect theory for metallic conductors. In the case of flat plates, formulas are derived for the field distribution, the impedance and the eddy-current power losses, considering symmetrical electric as well as magnetic fields. Impedance ... View full abstract»

    The parallel field excitation of piezoelectric plates, particularly of plates vibrating in thickness modes, and their resulting piezoelectric stress constants in general and of various quartz cuts are considered. Quartz AT-cut crystals excited by a parallel field are of practical interest for high precision frequency control and the data of the equivalent electric circuit of a 1000-kc AT quartz os...

    The transient behavior of aperture antennas is analyzed. For an antenna which is illuminated by a field of uniform phase and either uniform or cosine tapered amplitude, it is shown that the steady-state main lobe is established within (¿/2+R/c) seconds after the aperture is energized. ¿ is the period of the carrier frequency, R is the distance from the center of the aperture to the point where t...

  • Radar Target Classification by Polarization Properties

    The polarization properties of radar targets are studied as a parameter related to, but quite distinct from, echo area. It is found that targets are divided into several different classes. The polarization properties may be measured by rotating a linearly polarized radar antenna around the line of sight, and measuring the complex voltage presented at the receiving antenna terminals. It is shown th... View full abstract»

    A microwave analog of the low-frequency Meacham bridge oscillator, long known for its exceptional stability, is described. The incorporation of the resonant element of a feedback oscillator into an appropriate bridge circuit effectively multiplies the Q of the element and consequently the stability of the oscillator. The performance and design of an X-band oscillator consisting of a traveling-wave... View full abstract»

    The radio-frequency parameters and the quantummechanical parameters entering into the design of paramagnetic quantum-mechanical amplifiers are described and discussed. The physical and electrical limitations on such parameters as gain-bandwidth product, gain stability, and nonreciprocity are described analytically and with design curves. Two realizations of nonreciprocal amplifiers are described a... View full abstract»
