Abstract:

Presented is experimental work directed toward the development of high temperature, nuclear radiation resistant, integrated thermionic circuitry of high efficiency and long life. Tube research and development efforts are directed toward grid and cathode improvement, and zero contact potential techniques. Work was continued to develop a titanium matching ceramic which will exhibit a higher electrical resistivity at 580 C than materials currently in use. A program was initiated to improve the vacuum insulation of capacitor dielectic. Module boards and module mounting techniques are being designed and developed. The diode matrix was breadboarded, tested and the design proved to be satisfactory. The phase shift oscillator was designed, breadboarded and the components were specified. Preliminary work was done on the cathode follower circuit. Author
