Biography | show moreshow less
Lee de Forest (1863-1961) patented more than 300 inventions in wireless telegraphy, radio telephony, sound-on-film talking pictures, high-speed facsimile transmission, television, radiotherapy and related areas. One of his most important inventions was the triode Audion vacuum tube (patented in 1907) that was used in radios and televisions. The inventor demonstrated his discovery on January 20, 1910 with a broadcast of a live performance from New York City's Metropolitan Opera. By inventing the three-element vacuum tube, de Forest established the technology for all future telecommunication inventions, especially radio and television. He titled his autobiography, Father of Radio, but de Forest did not generally receive that recognition.
