Bmtislav Stojiljkovic, Dragoljub A. His greatest contributions to the science and technological progress of. He constructed a gen erator of high-frequency and high-voltage alternate currents, better known as the Tesla transformer, coreless transformer, or Tesla coil.
Nikola Tesla July 10 , — c. He is often regarded as one of the greatest geniuses of technological progression. His patents and theoretical work form the basis of modern alternating current electric power AC systems, including the polyphase power distribution system and AC motor , with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution. While conducting his work in the United States, he became a naturalized American citizen in The surname "Tesla" is a Serbian word that means adze.
In America, Tesla's fame paralleled that of any other inventor or scientist in history and in popular culture. His name became a byword for innovation and practical achievement. He was deemed a "magician" who conjured up technical feats. After his demonstration of wireless communication in and after being the victor in the " War of Currents ", he was widely respected as America's greatest electrical engineer.
Much of his early work pioneered modern electrical engineering and many of his discoveries were of groundbreaking importance. In his later years, Tesla was regarded as a mad scientist , and he ended his life impoverished and forgotten. Tesla's legacy can be seen across modern civilization wherever electricity is used. Tesla considered his exploration of various questions raised by science as ultimately a means to improve the human condition with the principles of science and industrial progress, and one that was compatible with nature.
Tesla was baptised in the Serbian Orthodox Church. He once said: "I'm proud of my Serbian heritage and my homeland Croatia". His father was Rev. His godfather, Jovan Drenovac, was a captain in the army protecting the Military Frontier. Tesla was one of five children, having one brother and three sisters. Tesla went to school in Karlovac today's Croatia , then studied electrical engineering at the Austria Politechnic in Graz , Austria While there, he studied the uses of alternating current.
Tesla engaged in reading many works, as he stated,. Tesla related in his autobiography that he experienced detailed moments of inspiration. From an early age Tesla would visualise an invention in his brain in precise form before moving to the construction stage which is known as picture thinking. In he moved to Budapest to work for a telegraph company, the American Telephone Company.
On the opening of the telephone exchange in Budapest, , Tesla became the chief electrician to the company, and was later engineer to the Yugoslav government and the country's first telephone system. He also developed a device that, according to some, was a telephone repeater or amplifier , but according to others could have been the first loudspeaker.
He suffered a nervous breakdown during this time. In he moved to Paris, France to work as an engineer for the Continental Edison Company , designing improvements to electric equipment.
In the same year, Tesla conceived of the induction motor and began developing various devices that use rotating magnetic fields for which he received patents in Soon thereafter, Tesla hastened from Paris to his mother's side as she lay dying, arriving hours before her death in Her last words to him were, "You've arrived, Nidzo, my pride.
In , when Tesla first arrived in the US, he had little besides a letter of recommendation from Charles Batchelor , his manager in his previous job. In the letter of recommendation to Thomas Edison , Charles Batchelor wrote, "I know two great men and you are one of them; the other is this young man.
Tesla's work for Edison began with simple electrical engineering and quickly progressed to solving the company's most difficult problems. Tesla was offered to undertake a complete redesign of the Edison company's continuous current dynamos.
Tesla worked nearly a year to redesign them and gave the Edison company several enormously profitable new patents in the process. Tesla resigned on the spot. The initial financial investors disagreed with Tesla on his plan for an alternating current motor and eventually relieved him of his duties at the company.
Tesla worked in New York as a common laborer from to to feed himself and raise capital for his next project. In , he constructed the initial brushless alternate-current induction motor , which he demonstrated to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers now IEEE in In the same year, he developed the principles of his Tesla coil and began working with George Westinghouse at Westinghouse's Pittsburgh labs.
Westinghouse listened to his ideas for polyphase systems which would allow transmission of alternating current electricity over large distances. In April of , Tesla began investigating what would later be called X-rays using his own single node vacuum tubes similar to his Template:US patent.
This device differed from other early X-ray tubes in that they had no target electrode. The modern term for the phenomena produced from this device is termed the bremsstrahlung process. He also used Geissler tubes. Tesla commented on the hazards of working with single node X-ray producing devices, attributing the skin damage to ozone rather than the radiation: "As to the hurtful actions on the skin I note that they have been misinterpreted Nitrous acid may also be responsible, but to a small extent".
Tesla, in Electrical Review, 30 November This is incorrect concerning cathodic X-ray tubes. Tesla later observed an assistant severely "burnt" by X-rays in his lab. On July 30 , , he became a naturalized citizen of the United States at the age of 35 and established his Houston Street laboratory in New York at 46 E. Houston St. He lit vacuum tubes wirelessly in it, providing evidence for the potential of wireless power transmission.
Around this time, Tesla developed a close and lasting friendship with Mark Twain. They spent a lot of time together in Tesla's lab and elsewhere. Also during this time, as seen in the PBS documentary film , Tesla was influenced by the Vedic philosophy teachings of the Swami Vivekananda. When Tesla was 36 years old, the first patents concerning the polyphase power system were granted.
He continued research of the system and rotating magnetic field principles. From to , he investigated high frequency alternating currents. He generated AC of one million volts using a conical Tesla coil and investigated the skin effect in conductors, designed tuned circuits, invented a machine for inducing sleep, cordless gas discharge lamps, and transmitted electromagnetic energy without wires, effectively building the first radio transmitter. In St. Louis , Missouri , Tesla made a demonstration related to radio communication in Addressing the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia , Pennsylvania and the National Electric Light Association , he described and demonstrated in detail its principles.
Tesla's demonstrations were written about widely through various media outlets. At the World's Fair , the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois , an international exposition was held which for the first time devoted a building to electrical exhibits.
It was an historic event as Tesla and George Westinghouse introduced visitors to AC power by using it to illuminate the Exposition. On display were Tesla's fluorescent lights and single node bulbs.
Tesla also explained the principles of the rotating magnetic field and induction motor by demonstrating how to make an egg made of copper stand on end in his demonstration of the device he constructed known as the " Egg of Columbus ". It was used to demonstrate and explain the principles of the rotating magnetic field model and the induction motor. In , according to an interview he gave in , Tesla invented a type of loudspeaker.
The sounds were of about the same quality as telephones of that time. The invention was never patented nor released publicly until years later by Tesla himself. Also in the late s , Tesla and Edison became adversaries in part due to Edison's promotion of direct current DC for electric power distribution over the more efficient alternating current advocated by Tesla. As a result of the " War of Currents ," Edison and Westinghouse were almost bankrupt , so in , Tesla released Westinghouse from contract, providing Westinghouse a break from Tesla's patent royalties.
Also in , Tesla researched radiation which led to setting up the basic formulation of cosmic rays. When Tesla was 41 years old, he filed the first basic radio patent Template:US patent.
A year later, he demonstrated a radio controlled boat to the US military, believing that the military would want things such as radio controlled torpedoes. Tesla developed the " Art of Telautomatics ", a form of robotics. These devices had an innovative coherer and a series of logic gates. Radio remote control remained a novelty until the s.
In the same year, Tesla devised an "electric igniter" or spark plug for Internal combustion gasoline engines. In , Tesla decided to move and began research in Colorado Springs, Colorado , where he could have room for his high-voltage high-frequency experiments. Upon his arrival he told reporters that he was conducting wireless telegraphy experiments transmitting signals from Pikes Peak to Paris. Tesla's time at this lab has been a source for urban legends about him. Tesla's diary contains explanations of his experiments concerning the ionosphere and the ground 's telluric currents via transverse waves and longitudinal waves.
Tesla, at his lab, proved that the earth was a conductor and produced artificial lightning with the discharges consisting of millions of volts and were up to feet long. Tesla also investigated atmospheric electricity, observing lightning signals via his receivers.
Reproductions of Tesla's receivers and coherer circuits show an unpredicted level of complexity e. In the Colorado Springs lab, he "recorded" signals of what he believed were extraterrestrial radio signals.
His announcements and data were rejected by the scientific community. He noted measurements of repetitive signals from his receiver which are substantially different from the signals he had noted from storms and earth noise.
Specifically, he later recalled that the signals appeared in groups of one, two, three, and four clicks together. Tesla spent the latter part of his life trying to signal Mars.
In Corum and Corum published an analysis of Jovian plasma torus signals which indicate that there was a correspondence between the setting of Mars at Colorado Springs, and the cessation of signals from Jupiter in the summer of when Tesla was there. Tesla left Colorado Springs on January 7 , The lab was torn down and its contents sold to pay debts. The Colorado experiments prepared Tesla for his next project, the establishment of a wireless power transmission facility that would be known as Wardenclyffe.
He is best known for his revolutionary work in, and numerous contributions to, the discipline of electricity and magnetism in the late 19th and early 20th century. Tesla's patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power AC systems, including the polyphase power distribution systems and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution. After his demonstration of wireless communication in and after being the victor in the "War of Currents", he was widely respected as America's greatest electrical engineer. In the United States, Tesla's fame rivaled that of any other inventor or scientist in history or popular culture ,  but due to his eccentric personality and, at the time, unbelievable and sometimes bizzare claims about possible scientific and technological developments, Tesla was ultimately ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist. Never putting much focus on his finances, Tesla died impoverished and forgotten at the age of Aside from his work on electromagnetism and engineering, Tesla is said to have contributed in varying degrees to the establishment of robotics, remote control, radar , and computer science and to the expansion of ballistics, nuclear physics and theoretical physics.

The friendship of the two men is well-documented, albeit slightly unusual. Tesla was a tall, slender man with peculiar habits, an oft-forgotten engineer and inventor; Twain, a man with a booming literary voice, was one of the best-known and best-loved of American authors. Tesla, in his autobiography, writes of a certain predestinated quality of the friendship, and credits Twain as one of the first who inspired him.
Он ахнул. Миллиард долларов. Соблазнительный образ Кармен тут же улетучился. Код ценой в один миллиард долларов. Некоторое время он сидел словно парализованный, затем в панике выбежал в коридор.
- Но кажется довольно подозрительным. Сьюзан кивнула. - То есть вы хотите сказать, Танкадо не волновало, что кто-то начнет разыскивать Северную Дакоту, потому что его имя и адрес защищены компанией ARA.
У меня его уже нет, - сказала она виноватым тоном. - Я его продала. ГЛАВА 33 Токуген Нуматака смотрел в окно и ходил по кабинету взад-вперед как зверь в клетке.
Празднично одетые испанцы выходили из дверей и ворот на улицу, оживленно разговаривая и смеясь. Халохот, спустившись вниз по улочке, смачно выругался. Сначала от Беккера его отделяла лишь одна супружеская пара, и он надеялся, что они куда-нибудь свернут. Но колокольный звон растекался по улочке, призывая людей выйти из своих домов.
