Abstract:

Life test data to 2000 hours of operation with temperature cycling were obtained. Agreement with the predicted power level is considered excellent, but significant problems remain. Our solution to these problems along with test data is presented. A study was completed to determine optimized cartridge configuration. Many improvements in design were made possible from experience obtained from test and fabrication problems encountered in the original design. Junction electrical resistance are reduced by techniques described. It is believed that the greatest significant attainment exists in the solution to the junction problem.
