|第9、10、11、12、13题：Television was not invented by any one person. Nor did it spring into being overnight. It evolved gradually, over a long period, from the ideas of many people -- each one building on the work of their predecessors. The process began in 1873, when it was accidentally discovered that the electrical resistance of the element selenium varied in proportion to the intensity of the light shining on it. Scientists quickly recognized that this provided a way of transforming light variations into electrical signals. Almost immediately a number of schemes were proposed for sending pictures by wire(it was, of course, before radio). |
One of the earliest of these schemes was patterned on the human eye. Suggested by G. R. Carey in 1875, it envisioned a mosaic of selenium calls on which the picture to be transmitted would be focused by a lens system. At the receiving end there would be a similarly arranged mosaic made up of electric lights. Each selenium cell would be connected by an individual wire to the similarly placed light in the receiving mosaic. Light falling on the selenium cell would reproduce the original picture, had the necessary amplifiers and the right kind of lights been availablr, this system would have workrd. But it also would have required an imoractical number of connecting wires. Carey recognized this and in a second proposed to “scan” the cells-transmitting the signal from each cell to its associated light, in turn, over a single wire. If this were done fast enough, the retentive power of the eye would cause the resultant image to be seen as a complete picture.
