Electron Physics of Vacuum and Gaseous Devices

Front Cover
Wiley, Apr 5, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 538 pages
An excellent text/reference that describes the fundamentals of electron physics. Presents working principles for diverse tubes and devices and includes technical data which demonstrates the state of art and use in possible applications. Although solid state has replaced old electron tubes in many electronic devices, electronic tubes and instruments are still important in vacuum technology, electron accelerators and microscopes, devices using free charged particles and microwaves. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics behind this technology.
