More Light on Information [Historical]

At the turn of the 20th century, when electric light superseded chemically fueled lamps, new uses of light began to emerge. They regarded information processing and transmission rather than power and

An Historical Survey on Light Technologies

A survey of the exploitation of light throughout the authors' history, including cinema, image processing, lasers, photovoltaic cells, and optical discs, and the recent success of fiber optics, white LEDs, and holography, evidence how vastly and deeply the interaction between light and man is still growing.

The Age of Vacuum Tubes: The Conquest of Analog Communications [Historical]

After they first appeared on the scene in the early 1900s [1], a series of improvements on vacuum tubes occurred in the second decade of the 20th century, leading them to maturity. A major
