Photoconductivity of Selenium Smith was an electrical engineer who worked on several major under-sea cable laying projects. While developing a system of testing the cables while they were being laid Smith needed a means by which the high resistance of a long cable could be simulated reliably. He obtained some resistors which were made from selenium wire hermetically sealed in glass tubes connected to platinum wires at each end of the tube.
They were making mesa transistors before the planar approach came in around I think that it came first, definitely.
I'd like to take this opportunity to have the three of you tell me about others who cannot be with us who've passed away, but also made important contributions to this pool of silicon technology at Bell Labs.
To begin with, as I understand it, Gordon Teal had done his work growing single crystals of silicon originally at Bell Labs before he moved on to Texas Instruments in Does anybody recall working with him?
Was he there when any of you were there, and did you have interactions with him? My recollection is that Gordon was there when I joined, but I think it was already clear that he was leaving for TI.
I got to know him and to say hello as we passed each other, but I never worked directly with him. I was over in the III-V compound area at that time. Do you have any recollections of his personality? I hear he was a stubborn guy. He took one task — and this one was to make single crystals — and could stay at it when everybody else didn't think it was worthwhile working on it.
That could very well be. He was not very communicative as far as I could tell. I think he was viewed as a loner who really did as you said and worked by himself. Finally, when he had a good result, that's when you would hear about it.
Another person I've seen pictures of him and read articles by him, but I have no sense of him and his interactions in the laboratory, is Calvin Fuller, the real pioneer of the diffusion process. Could anybody tell me about Calvin as a person and as a scientist?
Well, I got to know Cal Fuller quite well. He was always very open and very interested in seeing something that he did turn into something useful, and very, very cooperative. I'd try something, and it didn't work, and I'd want something different, so I would say, "Cal, can you do this? So I found him just a great guy to work with.
The technology of diffusion — and this was really what we were talking about, that led to the breakthroughs in silicon in the mid s — if you had to point to one of them, diffusion in silicon had to be the great enabling technology.

The fact that you could make micron or submicron-thick layers of the various impurities in silicon. It came out in That could convert solar energy into electricity at that time, I believe, and it was about 10 percent efficient, right?
I don't think it was that high. No, I don't think it was. I think that they thought that the limit at that time was about six percent, and they were well below that, but they had [indeed captured] solar energy.
Yes, and that was pretty good efficiency for solar converters. If I recall, it was made by taking a wafer of silicon, probably N type and then doing a boron diffusion so that you had a layer of P-type silicon.
So you had a P-N diode, and then by shining — of course you put the leads on — sunlight on it, and you could do the conversion.
Did anybody have much interaction with him? Oh, I had a lot of interaction with him.
Yes, I did too. Tell me about the technology too.Work Breakdown Structure Dictionary RIORDAN MANUFACTUING GO GREEN INITIATIVE WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE DICTIONARY WBS# TITLE RESPONSIBLE SCHEDULE MILESTONE COST ESTIMATES DEFINITION RGI.1 Riordan Green Initiative 5/2/ $, This WBS includes all taskings related to.

People who are addicted to gambling, also know as problem gamblers, face many health risks including depression, suicidal thoughts, loss of sleep, loss of appetite, migraine and anxiety in addition to marriage breakdown, problems at work and bankruptcy (9).

work breakdown structure a work breakdown structure (wbs) is a decomposition of all the work necessary to complete a project. a wbs is arranged in a hierarchy and constructed to allow for clear and logical groupings, either by activities or deliverables.
