Nikola Tesla was a visionary inventor and engineer, best known for the design of alternating current. Born in Croatia in 1856, he attended the Polytechnic School at Graz and the University of Prague. In 1884 Tesla moved to the U.S. He was associated briefly with Thomas Edison, but the two had a falling out. After a difficult period, during which Tesla invented but lost his rights to an arc-lighting system, he established his own laboratory, Wardenclyffe, in New York City in 1887. A controversy between AC and DC advocates raged in the 1880s and 1890s, featuring Tesla and Edison as leaders in the rival camps, with Tesla’s alternating current becoming standard. At the peak of his inventive powers, he produced in rapid succession the induction motor, new forms of generators and transformers, and a system for AC power transmission. Later he invented the Tesla coil and made basic discoveries concerning wireless communication. Tesla also invented fluorescent lights and a new type of steam turbine. A strikingly handsome man and captivating public lecturer, he exhibited unusual powers of perception and forecasting, but his life was increasingly that of a lonely recluse. He refused to accept the 1912 Nobel Prize offered jointly to him and Edison and reluctantly accepted the Edison Medal of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in 1917. He died in New York City in1943, the holder of more than 700 patents. In 1960, the term tesla was introduced as the SI unit measure for magnetic field strength.
