Guglielmo Marconi - The father of long distance radio communication - An engineer's tribute

  title={Guglielmo Marconi - The father of long distance radio communication - An engineer's tribute},
  author={P. K. Bondyopadhyay},
  journal={1995 25th European Microwave Conference},
On the occasion of the centennial, Marconi's epoch making invention and discovery that made long distance wireless communication possible, are remembered. Marconi's invention of the digital modulation of the Hertzian wireless waves and the discovery of the grounded waves that could bend to the curvature of the earth overcoming hills and obstacles, inaugurated the new revolutionary age in communication in the twentieth century. Marconi's wireless apparatus that made him the world's first…

The true origin of the "mercury coherer with a telephone" receiver that was used by G. Marconi to receive the first transatlantic wireless signal on December 12, 1901, has been investigated and

Past , Present and Future of Mobile Wireless Communication

A small sight at the evolution of mobile wireless communication systems developed in the past few decades, which aims at providing new features, greater quality of service, high data rates, enhanced efficiency etc.

Hermite-based communications: a time-frequency perspective

Time-frequency analysis, the two-dimensional description and analysis of signals in time-frequency, plays a prominent role throughout this thesis, which studies optimally time- frequencies localized signals: Hermite functions.

Towards the Feasibility of Long Range Wireless Power Transfer over an Ocean Surface

In this work, we have realized Zenneck’s style of wireless power transfer over a seawater surface. Method: The problem can be thought of as a surface electromagnetic wave propagating along an

Transmission of Plasmonic Energy Through a Non-Flat Surface

Since the Maxwell’s era, electromagnetic waves were believed to be travelling in a straight line in a manner not very different from a light ray. However, we have in this work proven the feasibility

Cognitive Radio Primer

In this chapter, wireless communication technologies relevant to cognitive radios are reviewed. This includes a discussion of some of the capacity limitations in wireless systems, nonideal effects in

Analysis and Compensation of Power Amplifier Distortions in Wireless Communication Systems

Wireless communication devices transmit message signals which should possess desirable power levels for quality transmission. Power amplifiers are devices in the wireless transmitters which increase

Optical control of radio beamsteering for broadband satellite communication

Antennas for Object Localization Systems

The objective of this work is to study different localization techniques, technologies and antennas in order to find a suitable solution that can be integrated in an indoor localization scenario. The



Wireless Telephony

MARCONI'S Wireless Telegraph Co., Ltd., gave a very interesting demonstration of the latest developments of wireless telephony at its works at Chelmsford on May 28. Although there was nothing very

Hertz and the Technological Significance of Electromagnetic Waves

On reviewing the manuscript of my monograph on the origins of radiotelegraphy,1 a British colleague a Fellow of the Royal Society who had studied in Germany asked me whether I knew that Heinrich

Microwave Antenna and Waveguide Techniques before 1900

Between the years 1888, when Hertz first launched electromagnetic radiation in the radio spectrum, and 1900, when Marconi was successfully establishing communication by radio, the scientific

The spirit of discovery an appreciation of the work of Marconi

It is not often that historical records show the name of a man credited with two basic discoveries. When a man has made three, then his attitude toward problems and how he solved them merit study.

Propagation of ELF electromagnetic waves and project sanguine/seafarer

Electromagnetic waves at extremely low frequency (ELF) have a remarkable ability to propagate with very low attenuation in the space between the earth's surface and the ionosphere. The resulting
