First Edition of the first book on microwave transmission. Slater, one of the first American physicists to contribute to quantum theory, “did more than any other person to provide the understanding requisite to progress in the microwave field” (Morse, p. 305). Microwave communication was first used on a large scale during World War II; up until the 1980s microwave relay systems were used to carry telephone and television signals, and in recent times there has been an explosive growth in the use of microwaves by wireless networks and other new telecommunication technologies.
