Example text

Between about 1934 and 1940, work on semiconductor materials had been carried out under the auspices of Bell Telephone Laboratories, mainly in connection with silicon point-contact rectifiers, which were being manufactured on a limited scale. S. H. C. Theurer were carrying out goal-directed research on silicon with the object of improving short-wave detecting diodes. Owing to the urgent wartime need for radar detectors and mixers, the United States government instituted a large-scale programme both in the field of solid-state research and the manufacture of these devices.

K. Lark-Horovitz of Purdue University recommended Eagle Pitcher Co develop techniques to prepare high-purity germanium. H. C. '52 Bell Laboratories constituted the research section of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, of which Western Electric formed the manufacturing section. By 1945 Western Electric were producing twenty-six times as many rectifiers as in 1942, the production rate rising to over 50,000 devices monthly. '53 Although this survey must by its nature be incomplete, it is nevertheless possible to outline the general features of developments which took place in the semiconductor field from its earliest stages to the situation immediately prior to the invention of the point-contact transistor by Brattain and Bardeen in 1947.
