Above: Tesla sits below the Tesla Coil in his Colorado Spring Laboratory.  The coil creates millions of volts of electricity with a frequency rate of 100,000 alterations per second.


Above: One of the original Tesla Electric Motors from 1888 which is today the main power of for industry and household appliances.  Tesla’s Electric Motor is one of the ten greatest inventions of all times.


Above:  Tesla is the father of high frequency high voltage electricity which is used today in radio and other communication devices.  Here is a photo from Colorado Springs, Colorado (in 1899), illustrating the capacity of the oscillator to create electricity of millions of volts and a frequency of 100,000 alternations per second.

Who’s Tesla?  


Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)

was the genius who lit the world, whose discoveries in the field of alternating polyphase current electricity advanced the United States and the rest of the world into the modern industrial era.

Nikola Tesla had 700 patents in the US and Europe. Tesla’s discoveries include the Tesla Coil, fluorescent light, wireless transmission of electrical energy, radio, remote control, discovery of cosmic radio waves and use of ionosphere for scientific purposes.

Nikola Tesla was a New Yorker, who lived and worked in New York City almost 60 years and died at Hotel New Yorker, in Manhattan, on January 7, 1943.


We here at the Tesla Memorial Society of New York want the world to know of Tesla.  Tesla’s impact on our civilization is tremendous, and his memory should be kept alive.

In 1917, Tesla was awarded the Edison Medal, the most coveted electrical prize in the United States.  

Nikola Tesla’s name has been honored with an International Unit of Magnetic Flux Density called "Tesla".

The United States Postal Service honored Tesla with a commemorative stamp in 1983.  

Tesla was inducted into the Inventor’s Hall of Fame in 1975.


The Nikola Tesla Award is one of the most distinguished honors presented by the Institute of Electrical Engineers.  The award has been given annually since 1976.

The Nikola Tesla Award is presented annually since 1968, at the Area Power Conference, Duluth, Minnesota.  The award is furnished by Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation. 

The Nikola Tesla Statue is located on Goat Island to honor the man whose inventions were incorporated into the Niagara Falls Power Station in 1896.  Tesla is known as the inventor of the polyphase alternating current.

The Nikola Tesla Corner Sign located at the intersection of 40th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, is a constant reminder to all New Yorkers of the greatness of this genius.

Many of the new technologies in the world today, are based on Tesla’s ideas.  Tesla spent 50 years of his life to find a way for interplanetary communications, especially with Mars.  He is the first scientist in the world to use the Ionosphere for scientific purposes (The Ionosphere is the upper part the atmosphere under constant bombardment of solar energy, which breaks down molecules into ions causing an ionized shield of our atmosphere, very important for radio communications).

Nikola Tesla is a unifying force for the people of the Balkans, and the people of the previous Austro-Hungary Empire (an area of Europe devoted to science and progress).  Every child in the Balkans knows about Tesla.

The Tesla Memorial Society of New York is proposing that Tesla’s birthday, July 10th, be proclaimed by the United Nations "Nikola Tesla Day".  This day will signify a day of science, cosmos explorations, and brotherhood among nations and religions around the world.

We are asking all Tesla admirers and all governments around the world to support the idea of "Nikola Tesla Day".



The World Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 was the World’s Fair commemorating 400 years since Chrstopher Columbys set foot in the New World.   This was the first great victory of Tesla’s Alternating Current Electricity.  Tesla and George Westinghouse started the electrification of the globe.

Tesla Unit

Tesla Unit for magnetic flux density equation (T=W/m2) on Serbian money.





Tesla = Weber/m²

Nikola Tesla’s name has been honored with the international unit of magnetic flux density called "Tesla".  All magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines are calibrated with Tesla Unit (from .2 Tesla to 9 Tesla).  MRI machines work on the principle of a homogeneous magnet field.  Nikola Tesla discovered the Rotating Magnetic Field in Budapest, 1882.  The Tesla Unit for magnetism was established in 1956 in the Rathaus of Munich, Germany by the International Electrotechnical Commission Committee in Action.

Because of the tremendous importance of the MRI technology and widespread use of the MRI machines around the world, which are all calibrated in Tesla Units, Tesla’s name connected with the MRI will be known more and more in the future and the years to come.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is extremely important for medical diagnosis of internal organs of the human body, especially the diagnosis of cancer, tumors, degenerative diseases of the brain and spinal cord. The modern diagnosis of the internal organs of the human body would be today unthinkable without MRI.  MRI machines are  widespread with many variations in size and capacity all around the world.  The revenue of MRI machines sales was 1.46 billion dollars in 2002.  Revenue for MRI machine sales is expected to increase in the following years.

MRI employs a strong homogeneous magnetic field and specific radio frequency to which many elements, especially hydrogen nuclei respond with radio frequency signals.  These signals are analyzed by computer reconstruction algorithms.  The healthy tissue and pathological tissue have different radio frequency signals and produce different images on MRI.  Therefore enable us to make diagnosis of pathological tissues of the body.

MRI has the advantage over CT scan, it uses no ionizing radiation and does not cause cumulative harm.  The only contraindication of those related to the high magnetic field.  Magnetic-sensitive objects like pacemakers, watched and magnetic tapes are contraindicated.
