Abstract:

A higher degree of reliability in electron tubes may be achieved through a better and more comprehensive understanding of the kinds and quantities of gases which occur in these tubes. A bakeable, ultraclean high- vacuum system which incorporates an omegatron mass spectrometer has been constructed for conducting these investigations. Essentially all of the effort during this period has been devoted to the construction and calibration of the various orifice systems utilized in the equipment. The results obtained and detailed indicate that the objectives of the study can in fact be achieved and work is currently progressing in this direction. Some preliminary degassing experiments are described.
