Radio receiver components. Radio technology was developed in the 1890s, with new detectors used as the technology progressed. At top is an electrolytic Jegou detector. At centre and bottom, is a crystal detector in horizontal and vertical views. Crystal radio receivers were first built around 1900, and used crystalline minerals to detect radio signals.
