Über dieses Buch

The life-long inventor, Lee de Forest invented the three-element vacuum tube used between 1906 and 1916 as a detector, amplifier, and oscillator of radio waves. Beginning in 1918 he began to develop a light valve, a device for writing and reading sound using light patterns. While he received many patents for his process, he was initially ignored by the film industry. In order to promote and demonstrate his process he made several hundred sound short films, he rented space for their showing; he sold the tickets and did the publicity to gain audiences for his invention. Lee de Forest officially brought sound to film in 1919. Lee De Forest: King of Radio, Television, and Film is about both invention and early film making; de Forest as the scientist and producer, director, and writer of the content. This book tells the story of de Forest’s contribution in changing the history of film through the incorporation of sound. The text includes primary source historical material, U.S. patents and richly-illustrated photos of Lee de Forest’s experiments. Readers will greatly benefit from an understanding of the transition from silent to audio motion pictures, the impact this had on the scientific community and the popular culture, as well as the economics of the entertainment industry.

Effizienzsteigerung durch die und in der Magnetlagertechnik

Magnetlager sind aus etlichen industriellen Anwendungen nicht mehr wegzudenken, in anderen erscheint ein Einsatz in Zukunft vielversprechend. Durch die Magnetlagertechnik werden Effizienzsteigerungen unterschiedlicher Art ermöglicht – sowohl auf direkte Weise durch Verringerung der Lagerverluste im Vergleich zu mechanischen Lagerungen, als auch durch Verbesserungen im industriellen Prozess, die erst durch die besonderen Eigenschaften der Magnetlagerung erzielt werden können.
