'This present, greatly expanded issue of the Proceedings... is one assigned to a novel, significant, and rapidly developing field, namely, the broad subject of semiconductors and those of their properties and applications of primary interest to the members of the Insitute. Specifically, it is concerned also with electronc devices based on germanium, thus including the whole class of components known as 'transistors'. Upon its emergence four years ago, the transistor promised to be one of the truly major advances, even in an art which has been accustomed to giant-stride progress. The fulfillment of this promise, however, depended on the difficult task of determining how to transform the transistor from a laboratory oddity to a practical device which could be manufactured uniformly and in quantity...' (from the introduction in this issue)

From, Spencer & moore sec. 47 p. 215 -- Items 1712 - 1715, The various papers cover the physics, characteristics and applications of transistors. Papers which include bibliographies are listed below as separate entries; shockley's FET paper, a theory for a new form of transistor is presented; footnote references, 9 items, 1947-1951.
