    Photomicrograph of an internal view of crystal imperfections in a silicon diode. The photomicrograph was taken with a scanning electron microprobe at a magnification of 620. This new technique in microscopy developed at Bell Telephone Laboratories enables semiconductor diodes to be studied without damaging the specimens or using special treatment. The electron beam penetrates the material under st... View full abstract»

    Those Happy Days Are Gone Forever. Once upon a time, during the reign of good King Steady-State, when the technical world was young, our engineering campuses were happy places. The ivy grew undisturbed on those classrooms and shops down by the power plant, and in their offices the faculty maintained a serenity engendered by their certainty of what they would teach next year — and the next, and the...

    The entire course of antenna development appears to have been altered by the rapid evolution of the self-phasing principle. Salient characteristics of adaptive, or self-phasing, antennas are described by means of a semiquantitative approach Antenna research is considered by some shortsighted individuals to be a “dead field.” The statement has been repeated many times since the end of World War II,...
