Abstract : The patent describes an electrical monitoring apparatus having a single ceramic envelope encased in a ground shield with two separated evacuated compartments. Contained in one of the compartments are the active electrical components of a vacuum tube amplifier and in the other compartment are the associated passive electrical components that are used in conjunction with the operation of the vacuum tube amplifier. The input terminal to the amplifier is physically positioned at one end of the ceramic envelope, while the output and all other circuit connections are at the other end. Thus, the possibility of electrical interference due to radiation effects when the apparatus is used in a gamma environment are minimized.
