Nineteen experts from the electronics industry, research institutes and universities have joined forces to prepare this book. It does nothing less than provide a complete overview of the electrophysical fundamentals, the present state of the art and applications, as well as the future prospects of microwave tubes and systems. The book does the same for optoelectronics vacuum devices, electron and ion beam devices, light and X-ray emitters, particle accelerators and vacuum interrupters.

This book deals with microwave electronics, that is to say those components of microwave circuits that generate, amplify, detect or modulate signals. It is based on a course given in the Electrical Engineering Department of Eindhoven University since 1985 and on about twenty years of experience in the microwave field. Somewhat to my surprise I found that there were hardly any textbooks that addressed the specific properties and demands of microwave devices, including vacuum devices and their interactions with circuits. Numerous books exist on semiconductor electronic devices, dealing in an excellent way with the basic device physics, but being somewhat brief on typical micro wave aspects. On the other hand there are also many books that concentrate on electromagnetic theory and passive circuits, treating devices without reference to the underlying physics. In between there are some entirely devoted to a particular device, for example, the GaAs MESFET. With regard to tubes the situation is even worse: books that treat the basic principles are usually quite old and modern books often concentrate on specific devices, like high power tubes. So it seems that there is room for a book like this one. Its aim is to provide an elementary understanding ofmicrowave electronic devices, both vacuum and semiconductor, on the one hand in relation to the basic physics underlying their operation and on the other in relation to their circuit applications.

Electronic Components, Tubes and Transistors is intended to bridge the gap between the basic measurement theory of resistance, capacitance, and inductance and the practical application of electronic components in equipments. The more practical or usage aspect of electron tubes and semiconductors is given emphasis over theory. The essential characteristics of each main type of component, tube, and transistor are summarized. This book is comprised of six chapters and begins with a discussion on the essential characteristics in terms of the parameters usually required in choosing a resistor, including size, temperature, linearity, and tolerances. The next chapter focuses on the electrical properties of fixed and variable capacitors such as impregnated-paper capacitors, metallized paper capacitors, and mica-dielectric capacitors. Subsequent chapters deal with magnetic materials and devices; electromagnetic components such as relays and switches; electron tubes and devices; and transistors and semiconductors. This monograph will be a valuable resource for students in choosing the right component and device for a particular application.

Is it possible to design and make automatic devices for industrial and power engineering without microcircuits and microprocessors and without complex power supplies? Electronic Devices on Discrete Components for Industrial and Power Engineering answers the question above with a resounding “Yes!” by describing ten original automatic devices based exclusively on modern discrete components. The book reveals that devices based on high-voltage transistors and thyristors as well as miniature vacuum and high power gas-filled reed switches are actually much simpler to implement and more reliable than traditional devices. By identifying elementary functional modules and the basic working principles of semi-conductor devices, the text allows for the construction of complete automatic devices. It also contains an extensive reference section that includes information on modern high-voltage bipolar, FET and IGBT transistors, thyristors and triacs, as well as reed switches.

The Physical Basis of Electronics: An Introductory Course, Second Edition is an 11-chapter text that discusses the physical concepts of electronic devices. This edition deals with the considerable advances in electronic techniques, from the introduction of field effect transistors to the development of integrated circuits. The opening chapters discuss the fundamentals of vacuum electronics and solid-state electronics. The subsequent chapters deal with the other components of electronic devices and their functions, including semiconductor diode and transistor as an amplifier and a switch. The discussion then shifts to several types of field-effect transistor and the production of p-n junctions, transistors, and integrated circuits. A chapter highlights the four classifications of thermionic valves commonly used in electronic devices, namely, diodes, triodes, tetrodes, and pentodes. This chapter also considers the effect of small gas introduced to the characteristics of these valves. The concluding chapters discuss some of the basic modes of operation of electronic circuits and cathode-ray tube. This edition is of great value to undergraduate electronics students.
