BELL LABS MEMOIRS: VOICES OF INNOVATION The leading edge spirit and inventive power of Bell Laboratories throughout the directorship of William Baker are defined by means of twelve those that labored there. throughout the first-hand bills of: John Pierce, father of communications satellites; Manfred Schroeder, speech encoding; Walter Brown, developer of silicon semiconductors; Carol Maclennan, desktops and the Ulysses spacecraft; Alan Chynoweth, fabrics learn, David Dorsi, specialist glassblower; Edward Zajac, submarine cables and economics learn; Edwin Chandross, optical stories and natural fabrics (inventor of the now ubiquitous gentle stick); Italo Quinto, chauffer to William Baker; Mohan Sondhi, inventor of the adaptive echo canceller; William Keefauver, Bell Labs’ basic patent legal professional; and finally, William Baker himself, the tradition of Bell Labs involves lifestyles.
The study performed at Bell Labs resulted in many units and methods that helped construct our current global. Acoustic cameras, adaptive predictive coding, block diagram compilers, cryptography, diamond crystal study, electronic conversation, echo study, inverse filtering, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), magnetic bubble thoughts, microwaves, natural box impact transistors, pulse code modulation, artificial speech, transistors, traveling-wave tubes, and vocoders are one of the themes recalled by way of the participants to this book.
