This volumes covers the milestones in telecommunications during that period, the most significant being the invention of the transistor in 1947. Size: Stout Octavo.
Near Fine in Near Fine Dustjacket. Prepared by members of the Technical Staff, AT & T Bell Laboratories. Blue buckram-covered boards, with just the tiniest bit of shelf-rubbing to extremities. Dustjacket near perfect but for almost unnoticeable tiny rubbed specks. 674 pp., including index. See our other offerings in this same series. NOTE: If all five books in this series remain unsold at time of your inquiry, all five volumes will be sold for 15% off total of individual prices. This volume in the series (A HISTORY OF ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE IN THE BELL SYSTEM) "Recorded here, for a significant period of Bell System history (1925-1980) are the principal research discoveries in physics and materials. (See Communciations Sciences volume (our catalogue listing #71953)k which follows this particular volume...The best known result of research at Bell Labs was the inventionof the transistor in 1947. This event triggered a tremendous growth in solid-state electronics, and the result has been a revolution in telecommunications, computer systems, and such consumer products as television, transistor radios, minicalculators, and digital watches...Other achievements of Bell Labs research in the physical sciences, inluding the conception of the laser in 1958, the helium-neon laser, the carbon dioxide laser and the heterostructure semiconductor laser used in lightwave transmission systems.
Good, fair to good. Small tears/chips to DJ edges. Topics covered include research in physics (magnetism and magnetic resonance, semiconductor physics and electronics--the transistor, surface physics--wave nature of the electron, electronic band structure of metals, quantum electronics--the laser, atoms, molecules, plasmas, astrophysics and magnetospheric physics--cosmic background radiation, ion beams, X-rays, electrons, ordered phases of matter and phase transitions, and the role of theoretical physics at Bell Laboratories), and research in materials (semiconductors, magnet materials--bubbles and chromindur, glasses--fiber light guides, polymers, superconductors, electric currents and electrical conduction, improving themechanical properties of materials, crystal growth and other processing techniques, and characterization techniques).
