The true history of the traveling wave tube

  title={The true history of the traveling wave tube},
  author={John A. Copeland and Andre A. Haeff},
  journal={IEEE Spectrum},
An intense-looking young man stepped out of his engineering lab at Caltech to watch what was happening. In the university's nearby high-voltage laboratory, gigantic bolts of electricity were leaping eerily from outlandish equipment. It was 1931, and a Hollywood crew was filming the spark-filled special effects for the creation scene in Boris Karloff's first Frankenstein movie. The serious-minded young engineer loved cinema, but as he walked back to his bench in the Kellogg Radiation Laboratory… 
The traveling-wave tube in the history of telecommunication
The circumstances and contexts that led to the traveling-wave tube invention, and its part in the worldwide expansion of TV broadcasting via microwave radio relays and satellites, are presented.
A New Approach to Duality of Electron
I decipher quantum duality of electron in Young’s Double-Slit experiment. Hypothesis intends to decode interaction of knocked-electrons with observer, and perturbative disappearance of interference
Mesoporous Silica-Based Materials for Electronics-Oriented Applications
The article describes constant struggle of researchers to find better solutions to supercapacitors, lower the k value or redox-active hybrids while maintaining robust mechanical properties and refers to ultra-modern applications of silica such as molecular artificial neural networks or super-dense magnetic memory storage.
Screen History: The Haeff Memory and Graphics Tube
Haeff-type tubes formed the high-speed memory of Whirlwind I but had their greatest impact in graphics and display technology, remaining in widespread use until the 1980s. Haeff seems to have been
Dispersion properties and beam excitation of symmetric slow waves in helix traveling wave tubes in the presence of plasma
The propagation of the hybrid slow waves in the new helix traveling wave tube, including a dielectric rod, gas plasma layer, and helix sheath is examined. It is assumed that the plasma is strongly
Estimating Internal Temperature of Slow Wave Structure Based on RBF Neural Network and Designing Test Model
A method for estimating the inner temperature of TWT, based on RBF neural network model and ANSYS thermal simulation data of slow wave structure, and the results with very small error are obtained by simulation data.
Estimating internal heat flux distribution of TWT collector based on GA-BP neural network model
At present, there are many researches on the TWT (traveling wave tube) thermal properties. However, the investigations on the measurement of the temperature field inside the TWT are rarely involved.
