History of the Telstra Research Laboratories

 

Australian and Overseas Publications

Laboratories staff regularly contributed articles to Australian and overseas professional and technical journals as well as presenting papers to learned societies. They also contributed as editors for many journals. This comprehensive collection of Australian publications contains many references to the Research Laboratories in articles, investigations and equipment designed and built by the Laboratories. Search for “Research” or “Laboratories” in the files.

All publications referenced below have been scanned using sophisticated optical character recognition (OCR) software and saved as Adobe Acrobat PDF searchable image files. The following OCR limitations and other issues apply:

·         Most text has been faithfully recognised, is searchable and can be selected and copied.

·         Tables are recognised by the OCR software but not reproduced as tables in the PDF file.

·         On rare occasions, columns are not recognised so text flows directly across the page. However, whenever this is observed during scanning, it is manually fixed.

·         Hyphenated words have a space inserted at the hyphenation point.

·         Images are well recognised but not de-screened. They can be extracted with a suitable PDF reader (e.g. IrfanView).

·         Equations are recognised as part image and part text.

·         Blank pages have been removed. In some instances this will create skips in page numbering.

·         Due to ageing, the paper on some early edition pages has developed a brown tinge on the edges or over the whole page and this is reproduced on the digital copy.

File sizes vary from 5 Mbytes to 26 Mbytes.
