Abstract : Extensive experimental data on the triode gun of microperveance 8.92 is presented. Extensive tests on the microperveance 4.46 gun with an Einzel lens are proposed. A reduction in beam interception by control of the potential profile in the cathode region and an experimental investigation of optimum entrance conditions to the electrostatic forcusing system are the present avenues of approach. Some results on magnetic focusing applied to the 100-watt tube of the original design are presented. (Author)
