J. James Glbson received the B.Sc. degree (Civilingenjor) in electrical engineering from the Royal institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden and the M.Sc. degree (Teknologie Licentiat) from Chalmers Institute of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. From 1946 to 1952 he was employed by the Swedish Department of Defense engaged in research on antennas, microwave circuits, and radar systems. As a fellow of the American Scandinavian Foundation he worked for a year and a half at RCA Laboratories, Princeton, New Jersey, where he contributed to the development of TV transmitting antennas and to transistor circuits for radio receivers. Upon his return to Sweden in 1954 he initiated and led a transistor circuits research group at the Royal Institute of Technology, where he also instructed in solid state circuits.
In 1956 Mr. Gibson joined the technical staff of RCA Laboratories where he has been involved in a variety of projects related to broadcast systems, solid state circuits, and consumer electronics including TV bandwidth compression, high speed computer circuits, integrated memories with field effect transistors, facsimile broadcasting, cable television systems, TV receiving antennas, holographic recording of television, and FM broadcast systems for stereophonic and quadraphonic sound. His current research activities are primarily related to the RCA VideoDisc system. For his contributions he has received three RCA Laboratories achievement awards and became a Fellow of the Technical Staff of 1969. From 1971 to 1973 he was also a lecturer in communication theory at LaSalle College, Philadelphia, and he is currently visiting professor in the graduate electrical engineering department at Rutgers University.
Mr. Gibson is a senior member of the IEEE, a member of the AAAS, the Audio Engineering Society, and the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers.
