HERE was no lengthy research program leading 1 4 to our discovery of the cavity magnetron at the end of 1939 but there existed a very special set of circumstancs in which we were, in some ways, fortunate to be involvedl. We were fortunate in that we were in Oliphant’s 1aborator:y at the University of Birmingham. He had succeeded to tile Poynting Chair of Physics in 1937 and had come from the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, and he was rapidly building a research team containing a number.of… CONTINUE READING
