Caption

Nikola Tesla Engraving of Nikola Tesla (1856- 1943), Serb-American physicist and electrical engineer. Tesla was educated at Graz and Prague, but in 1884 he emigrated to America. For a while he worked with Edison, but soon left to set up on his own. He developed the alternating current induction motor. He helped advance a.c. power generation and transmission. He then turned to high-frequency a.c. currents, inventing the Tesla Coil, a type of air core transformer. Tesla was a pioneer of wireless communication and experimented with very low frequency wireless using the earth as a medium. Tesla became an eccentric recluse in later life.
