Browder J. Thompson
The November 1941 issue of the PROCEEDINGS OF THE IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers) included a paper on secondary-emission electron multipliers by Browder J. Thompson for whom an annual award still presented by the IEEE was later named. At the time of the paper, he worked for the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in Harrison, New Jersey. The same issue of the PROCEEDINGS contained two other technical papers on electron multipliers by RCA engineers. Television pioneer, Philo T. Farnsworth, patented an electron multiplier in 1934 and used it in his image-dissector camera tube. RCA engineers investigated television and other applications of electron multiplication during the 1930’s. One application introduced during World War II employed an electron multiplier tube as a noise source for electronic countermeasures transmitters.
