|Considering the greater amounts of energy which can be collected and stored in suitable experimental form in capacitors, one could expect to deliver radiated energy for some time from them.||Time|
|Elementary considerations led me to the conclusion that a medium, composed of layers of different dielectric constants, must behave as a uniaxial crystal if it is assumed that the layer thicknesses are only a fraction of a wave-length.|
|In the summer of 1902, I was able to erect two experimental stations on two forts at Strasbourg for the purpose of closer study.|
