Research on the Work of Nikola Tesla
PV Scientific Instruments is extremely pleased to offer the following reprints of papers and books by electrical engineer Dr. James F. Corum, Ph.D. and experimental physicist Kenneth L. Corum, and their associates.
By applying rigorous formal scientific analysis to Nikola Tesla's experiments, these researchers have provided contemporary scientists and experimenters with a new understanding of Tesla's work. These publications cover many of the major scientific contributions made by the Corum brothers over the past decade. Short bios of these remarkable researchers are offered at the bottom of this page.
About shipping charges: For shipment within the U.S., add $4.50 for the first reprint and $2.50 for each additional reprint. For shipment outside the U.S., please inquire about shipping costs to your country.
Both Nikola Tesla and Voyager I detected singlet, doublet, and
triplet pulses emanating from the Planet Jupiter; however, Tesla's
announcement that he had received radio signals from another planet
was made in the year 1900. This paper reveals how Tesla made the
first successful observations in radio astronomy. Skeptics are
invited to read this paper and then reconstruct Tesla's apparatus so
they can themselves actually listen to these Jovian signals. $22.00
This paper presents an analytical development of the extra coil as a top-loaded, slow-wave helical resonator. The treatment starts with foreshortened coaxial resonator whose inner conductor is constructed of an end-loaded spiral delay line. Formulas are then developed for the slow-wave velocity factor and characteristic impedance of the equivalent transmission line which are valid as the outer walls of the resonator recede to infinity, leaving Tesla's open coil resonator above ground. The Voltage Standing Wave Ratio is then analyzed, including losses, and the voltage step-up of any distributed Tesla coil resonator is obtained.
The resulting model not only predicts the resonant behavior of the extra coil, but readily permits its representation on a Smith chart. The model also serves to explain how Tesla tuned the RF portion of the Colorado Springs apparatus and is shown to be consistent with Tesla's specific diary instructions. $15.00
It is clear from his numerous technical publications that Tesla
invented and developed a particular single-electrode x-ray tube in
the mid-1890s. This paper provides critical speculations concerning
the intended operation and applications of this x-ray tube. $15.00
