Abstract:

A 5AQP7 tube with a molded split-cylinder type gun was completed. It operated very satisfactorily, and compared favorably to conventional tubes. Although the feasibility of molded electron guns was adequately demonstrated, many refinements are still possible. The gun design for the complete cylinder gun was practically completed and requires only minor adjustments. Since these adjustments can be made in the molded part, it was possible to complete the required drawings and requisition the mold. Author
