Description

"This invention relates to the production of electrical oscillations or impulses by means of the motion of a beam or beams of charged particles, ions, or electrons emanating from an electrode in an inclosed space under low pressure, and to the use of such a beam or beams for other purposes, as for example for the conduction of high frequency currents. I have found that it is possible to influence magnetically or electrostatically beams of charged particles, ions or electrons emanating from a Wehnelt cathode or the like, in a vacuum tube so as to obtain from a direct or alternating current, either with or without the use of antennae, a series of oscillation or impulses; and that by directing the beams through a plurality of narrow paths a very small vacuum tube can be used to produce the same with a relatively high power."
