Measurement Of Cathode Emission By Use Of The Electron Microscope , Francis Meade Bailey Jan 1940

Measurement Of Cathode Emission By Use Of The Electron Microscope , Francis Meade Bailey

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The electron emission from cathode surfaces changes rapidly with temperature. The difficulty of measuring the true temperature of surfaces such as that of Barium or strontium oxide has led to the development of a comparison method in which two or more materials may be heated under identical conditions. An electron micro-scope system was used to segregate the emission from each material, the current density measurement being made photographically;Curves for Dushman's equation were plotted as a check on the reliability of the method. The apparatus was used to prepare a table of the relative emission obtained from a few ...


Breakdown Potentials Of Gases Under Alternating Voltages , David Oren Mccoy Jan 1938

Breakdown Potentials Of Gases Under Alternating Voltages , David Oren Mccoy

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This investigation was devoted to a study of the starting potentials of gases of commercial purity for frequencies less than one million cycles per second. The gases used were Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Helium, and Argon. The discharge tube was of spherical design having spherical aluminum electrodes three-fourths inch to diameter. Five gap distances were used ranging from 10 mm to 50 mm;The results of the investigation show that: (1) The effect of impurities in the gas pointed out by J. Thomson were not observed. (2) The usual straight line portion of the curves of Vs versus pressure were observed to ...


High Frequency Glow Discharge With Internal Electrodes , Nathan Theodore Burdine Jan 1937

High Frequency Glow Discharge With Internal Electrodes , Nathan Theodore Burdine

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This thesis was a quantitative study of the variation in intensities of certain lines in the hydrogen spectrum as a function of excitation frequency and pressure when internal electrodes were used. The high frequency voltage was applied to the gas by the connection of a push-pull oscillator to internal carbon electrodes. The gas system was designed to obtain spectroscopically pure hydrogen. The logarithmic sector method was used to measure the intensities of the spectrum lines, and a cathode ray oscillograph was used to measure the potential difference between the electrodes;The spectrograms were taken for pressures ranging from .005 to ...


Blackening Of Photographic Materials By Means Of Low Voltage Cathode Rays , Allan Reedy Brown Jan 1935

Blackening Of Photographic Materials By Means Of Low Voltage Cathode Rays , Allan Reedy Brown

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Work undertaken was to determine the effect of cathode rays photographic materials. It was desired to find the relations between the voltage of the cathode rays and blackening, and the total charge received by the film and the blackening;Special apparatus was designed for carrying out this work, exposures being made a specially constructed vacuum chamber of brass. The apparatus differed from apparatus previously used for this type of work in that a special camera was provided which made exposures on a film moving past a slit through which the electrons entered the camera. The slit was half v-shaped, giving ...
