Electrician, inventor; b. Smiljan, Dika, border coun-
try of Austro-Hungary; s. of a distinguished Greek
clergyman and orator, and of Georgiana Mandic, a
famous woman and inventor, whose father was also

4 years in public school in Gospic, Lika, 4 years in
Lower Real School, Gospic, and 3 years in Higher
Real School, Carlstadt, Croatia, where was grad., 1873.
Originally destined for the clergy, but prevailed upon
his parents to send him to Poly. School in Gratz.
where for four years studied mathematics, physics
and mechanics, following with two years in philo-
sophical studies at Univ. of Prague, Bohemia. Began
practical career, 1881, in Budapest, Hungary, where
made his first electrical invention, a telephone re-
peater, and conceived the idea of his rotating-mag-
netic field; thence went to France and Germany, where
was successfully engaged in various branches of
eng'ring and mf'g; since 1884, in U. S., of which is a
naturalized citizen. Author of numerous scientific
papers and addresses. Among his inventions and dis-
coveries are: System of arc lighting, 1886; Tesla Mo-
tor, and system of alternating current power trans-
mission, popularly known as 2-phase, 3-phase, multi-
phase or polyphase systems, 1888; system of electrical
conversion and distribution by oscillatory discharges,
1889; generators of high-frequency currents and ef-
fects of these, 1890; transmission of energy through
a single wire without return, 1S91; the Tesla Coll or
Transformer, 1891; novel system of electric lighting
by Tesla tubes, 1891; investigations of high-frequency
effects and phenomena, 1891-1893; system of wireless
transmission of intelligence, 1893; mechanical oscil-
lators and generators of electrical oscillations, 1894-
1895; researches and discoveries in radiations, mate-
rial streams and emanations, 1896-1898; high-poten-
tial magnifying transmitter, 1897; system of trans-
mission of power without wires, 1897-1905; economic
transmission of energy by refrigeration, 1898; art of
Telautomatics, 1S98-1899; discovery of stationary
electrical waves in the earth, 1899; burning of atmos-

effects of transcending intensities, 1899-1900; method

and apparatus for magnifying feeble effects, 1901-
1902; art of individualization, 1902-1903: since 1903
chiefly engaged in development of his system of
world-telegraphy and telephony, and the design of a
large plant for the transmission of power without
wires, to be erected at Niagara. His most important
recent work is the discovery of a new mechanical
principle, which he has embodied in a great variety
of machines, as reversible gas and steam turbines,
pumps, blowers, air compressors, water turbines,
mechanical transformers and transmitters of power,
hot-air engines, etc. This principle enables the pro-
duction of prime movers capable of developing ten
horsepower, or even more, for each pound of weight.
By their application to aerial navigation, and the
propulsion of vessels, high speeds are practicable.
