Wonderfully tight and nice first edition of the 25th volume in M.I.T.'s "Radiation Laboratory Series." Physicist, educator and long-time CalTech president Lee A. DuBridge introduces this highly technical study -- this copy with front flyleaf ownership signature and purple name/address inkstamp of Georges A. Deschamps (1911-98), noted University of Illinois professor of electrical engineering who made significant radiation discoveries about Gaussian beams.
