    Evidence of midlatitude “dumping” of energetic particles from the earth's radiation belts has been reported by scientists of the Institute for Telecommunications Sciences in Boulder, Colo. The institute, a component of the U.S. Department of Commerce Office of Telecommunications, is the chief civilian research unit of the federal government for electromagnetic propagation. The dumping evidence was... View full abstract»

    The use of electron and ion beams in the field of microelectronics has grown rapidly over the past ten years. For example, fine-focused electron beams, which initially were employed in diagnostic tests on integrated circuits and semiconductor devices, now are being utilized in the laboratory for creating devices and circuits with resolutions considerably higher than the values achievable by photol...

  • Using thyristors and diodes to improve commutation

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):38 - 47
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (12448 KB)

    Machines employing thyristor- and diode-assisted commutation (TAC and DAC) offer numerous advantages over conventional dc machines in applications where commutation is a problem. It is anticipated that the first practical developments will involve adaptations of present systems, followed at a later date by the introduction of more unconventional construction techniques.

  • Systems analysis as a tool for urban planning

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):48 - 58
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (20558 KB)

    Ways for analyzing social systems result in new policies for improving the behavior of systems in which we live. Such policies can change urban slums into areas designed for self-renewal. Already, studies into the relationships between monetary policy, interest rates, and foreign exchange have thrown new light on the processes of corporate growth, product stagnation, and loss of market share, and ...

    Communications satellites have been in commercial operation for more than five years. With the growth of traffic requirements, particularly those of the developing nations, the early methods used in the Intelsat network for multiple access have had to be updated. The full potential of satellite communications can be realized by using the satellite to provide connections between any two users on de... View full abstract»

  • Assessment, transfer, and forecasting of technology

    The United States is finally facing up to the fact that we can no longer tolerate the uncontrolled application of technology. We are now seeing the results of what has seemed almost a national program of conspicuous consumption — depletion of our natural resources and the deterioration of our environment. Hopefully, the trend can still be reversed by planning and control. Over the years, a substan... View full abstract»

    Last month, “Inside IEEE” replaced “News of the IEEE.” The change in name was in keeping with the new material added to these columns that gives advance information on policy changes under consideration, experimental programs under way, and on other such happenings. “Inside IEEE” is one medium for letting each IEEE member know what is under consideration and what is being tried experimentally — in...
