Due to his demonstration of wireless communication through radio, Nikola Tesla was widely respected as one of the greatest electrical engineers in America. In the United States, Tesla's fame rivaled that of any other inventor or scientist in history or popular culture. This book consists of Tesla's research for the practical development of a system for wireless transmission of power (electricity) -- the transmission of power from station to station. The notes are highly detailed, and clearly show his transmitting electricity without wires by means of his magnifying transmitter. A must-read for anyone interested in Tesla's revolutionary experiments with transmitters.

Tesla: Inventor of the Modern

Tesla’s inventions transformed our world, and his visions have continued to inspire great minds for generations. Nikola Tesla invented the radio, robots, and remote control. His electric induction motors run our appliances and factories, yet he has been largely overlooked by history. In Tesla, Richard Munson presents a comprehensive portrait of this farsighted and underappreciated mastermind. When his first breakthrough—alternating current, the basis of the electric grid—pitted him against Thomas Edison’s direct-current empire, Tesla’s superior technology prevailed. Unfortunately, he had little business sense and could not capitalize on this success. His most advanced ideas went unrecognized for decades: forty years in the case of the radio patent, longer still for his ideas on laser beam technology. Although penniless during his later years, he never stopped imagining. In the early 1900s, he designed plans for cell phones, the Internet, death-ray weapons, and interstellar communications. His ideas have lived on to shape the modern economy. Who was this genius? Drawing on letters, technical notebooks, and other primary sources, Munson pieces together the magnificently bizarre personal life and mental habits of the enigmatic inventor. Born during a lightning storm at midnight, Tesla died alone in a New York City hotel. He was an acute germaphobe who never shook hands and required nine napkins when he sat down to dinner. Strikingly handsome and impeccably dressed, he spoke eight languages and could recite entire books from memory. Yet Tesla’s most famous inventions were not the product of fastidiousness or linear thought but of a mind fueled by both the humanities and sciences: he conceived the induction motor while walking through a park and reciting Goethe’s Faust. Tesla worked tirelessly to offer electric power to the world, to introduce automatons that would reduce life’s drudgery, and to develop machines that might one day abolish war. His story is a reminder that technology can transcend the marketplace and that profit is not the only motivation for invention. This clear, authoritative, and highly readable biography takes account of all phases of Tesla’s remarkable life.

Important new insights into how various components and systemsevolved Premised on the idea that one cannot know a science withoutknowing its history, History of Wireless offers a lively newtreatment that introduces previously unacknowledged pioneers anddevelopments, setting a new standard for understanding theevolution of this important technology. Starting with the background-magnetism, electricity, light, andMaxwell's Electromagnetic Theory-this book offers new insights intothe initial theory and experimental exploration of wireless. Inaddition to the well-known contributions of Maxwell, Hertz, andMarconi, it examines work done by Heaviside, Tesla, and passionateamateurs such as the Kentucky melon farmer Nathan Stubblefield andthe unsung hero Antonio Meucci. Looking at the story frommathematical, physics, technical, and other perspectives, theclearly written text describes the development of wireless within avivid scientific milieu. History of Wireless also goes into other key areas,including: The work of J. C. Bose and J. A. Fleming German, Japanese, and Soviet contributions to physics andapplications of electromagnetic oscillations and waves Wireless telegraphic and telephonic development and attempts toachieve transatlantic wireless communications Wireless telegraphy in South Africa in the early twentiethcentury Antenna development in Japan: past and present Soviet quasi-optics at near-mm and sub-mm wavelengths The evolution of electromagnetic waveguides The history of phased array antennas Augmenting the typical, Marconi-centered approach, History ofWireless fills in the conventionally accepted story withattention to more specific, less-known discoveries and individuals,and challenges traditional assumptions about the origins and growthof wireless. This allows for a more comprehensive understanding ofhow various components and systems evolved. Written in a clear tonewith a broad scientific audience in mind, this exciting andthorough treatment is sure to become a classic in the field.

Die Geschichte wird von den Siegern geschrieben. Aber dies ist kein Trost für diejenigen, deren Name von der Feder des Verlegers herausgestrichen wurde. Viele Jahre lang haben die wissenschaftlichen Lehrbücher Elektrizität und Licht mit einem einzigen Mann, Thomas Edison, gleichgesetzt, während der Name des Genies, dessen elektrische Techniken die heutige Welt speisen, in einer unbedeutenden Notiz am Rande der Geschichte der Wissenschaft verkümmerte. Vor Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts war Elektrizität ein rein wissenschaftliches Kuriosum. Nikola Tesla hat dies wohl mehr als jeder Andere geändert. Aber Teslas Nachforschungen über die Elektrizität stellen nur einen kleinen Teil seiner wissenschaftlichen und technischen Errungenschaften dar, die ihm den Titel des Genies einbrachten. Nikola Tesla: Mein Leben, Meine Forschung" besteht aus vier Teilen: eine Einführung zu Teslas Leben, Teslas Autobiografie, einige von Teslas wichtigsten Arbeiten, in einfachen Worten erklärt, und eine hundert Seiten umfassende Sammlung seltener Fotografien, die in mehreren Lebensabschnitten Teslas aufgenommen wurden, von seiner Geburtsurkunde über die erste mit phosphoreszierendem Licht geschossene Fotografie bis hin zum letzten Foto, kurz vor seinem Tod, im Jahre 1943. Ein Band: 362 Seiten.

La primera biografía que se publica en español sobre uno de los personajes más influyentes de la ciencia contemporánea. Un relato completo de la vida y la obra de Tesla en el entorno de la revolución industrial. Hoy pocos recuerdan a Nikola Tesla, pero gracias a él se enciende la bombilla del techo cuando pulsamos un interruptor. Fue el descubridor del campo magnético rotatorio, la base de la corriente alterna que hoy ilumina el mundo; pero también el padre de tecnologías visionarias en su época como la robótica, la informática o las armas teledirigidas. Nikola Tesla es el paradigma del inventor genial, la mente creativa sin perspicacia para los negocios, y su vida es la historia de un fogonazo de luz que iluminó a todos los que lo rodearon, para apagarse de forma triste...y resurgir hoy, con el homenaje y el recuerdo de los científicos modernos que reconocen a Tesla como “el padre de la tecnología moderna”. Margaret Cheney, escritora norteamericana, nacida en Oregon en 1921, destacó como biógrafa de gran versatilidad. Además de este libro, titulado originalmente Tesla: A Manout of Time, escribió otro libro sobre el mismo personaje en colaboración con Robert Uth, y las obras Midnight at Mabel’s y Meanwhile Farm and Why.

Tesla hat viel geschaffen, noch mehr wurde ihm zugeschrieben und angedichtet. Wie wohl kein andere Erfinder beflügelt er die Phantasie der Menschen: Er soll ein Energiewesen von der Venus gewesen sein und sein Weltsystem hätte sämtliche Energieprobleme der Erde umweltfreundlich lösen können. Michael Krause hält sich an die Tatsachen, und die sind schon spannend genug. Er beschriebt wie Tesla vom Balkan kommend über Paris in die USA auswanderte, dort seine wichtigsten Erfindungen machte und schließlich Spielball der Großindustrie wurde. Tesla war aber mehr als nur ein willfähriges Subjekt: Er folgte immer seinen Visionen, nur konnte er sich meist nicht durchsetzen. So ist dieses Buch ein Krimi um Wissenschaft, Geld, Macht und das Scheitern eines Genies.
