  • Patent number: 5735720
    Abstract: The invention relates to a controllable thermionic electron emitter for vacuum tubes, which comprises an emitter layer (3, 27) and a control layer (5) which is separated from the emitter layer by an insulating layer (4), with the insulating layer and the control layer being manufactured by a deposition process. Also when its dimensions are small, such an electron emitter can be dimensionally accurately manufactured. All functional elements of the controllable thermionic electron emitter, more particularly control layer(s) (5, 7, 22, 24), emitter layer (3, 27) and separating insulating layers (2, 4, 6, 21, 23, 25) are successively deposited on a substrate (1, 20) in the direction of growth, in such a manner that the layers adhere to each other via solid boundary layers. In operation and, in particular, when the temperature varies, the dimensional accuracy of the electron emitter is preserved within narrow limits, and said electron emitter has a long service life.

  • Patent number: 4965090
    Abstract: Electrically conductive multicomponent material is deposited on a tubular substrate (3) by means of a PCVD method. A plasma (9) is produced between an inner electrode (13) and an outer electrode, one of which is tubular and serves as a substrate. In order to obtain multicomponent material of the desired composition, the composition of the gas phase is changed as a function of time and/or place. In particular when metalorganic starting compounds are used, PCVD of many single layers together with an intermittent, for example, Ar/O.sub.2 plasma intermediate treatment yields an efficient removal of undesired carbon or fluorine from the deposited multicomponent material already during its manufacture.

  • Patent number: 4877642
    Abstract: Layers of electrically conductive material are deposited in a standing microwave field. The deposition is done on an electrically conductive substrate in which a part of the surface forms a part of the inner wall of a microwave cavity resonator. As a result of this the microwave energy is used optimally. Measures are taken to keep the coupling place of the microwave ("window") free from an electrically conductive growth. The substrate is preferably moved periodically or aperiodically relative to the plasma and the remaining walls of the resonator.

  • Patent number: 4714589
    Abstract: The inside of a tube of an electrically insulating material is coated with a layer of electrically insulating material by reactive deposition of the coating material from a gas mixture which is passed through the tube. The tube is heated and the deposition is activated by a plasma produced by microwaves. The plasma reciprocates in the tube. Energy consumption is reduced by heating the tube to the reaction temperature at least partly by the energy supplied by the plasma to the tube wall. Thermal losses of the tube are reflected back to the tube wall by a heat reflecting element.

  • Patent number: 4713259
    Abstract: For the reactive deposition of tubular bodies of electrically conductive material from a flowing gas phase on a tubular substrate, a glow discharge 11 is produced between an inner electrode 6 and an outer electrode 2, one of which is constructed so as to be tubular and serves as a substrate. It is ensured that the electrodes 2, 6 are not short-circuited by growing conductive surface layers so that the glow discharge 11 extinguishes. Furthermore, the electrically conductive coating on the electrode 6 which does not function as the substrate electrode is interrupted in an insulating manner to locally limit the glow discharge 11. For example, by a gas barrier the deposit of an electrically conducting material on the insulation can be avoided. The glow discharge 11 is reciprocated during the deposition process.

  • Patent number: 4384038
    Abstract: Optical waveguide circuits, such as signal splitters, can be produced by etching grooves in a transparent, glass substrate and by filling the grooves with glass having a higher refractive index than the material of the substrate. The grooves have a semicircular cross-section and the filling glass is produced by a low temperature plasma-activated chemical vapor deposition process. Two substrates can be placed on top of each other, with the surfaces in which the filled grooves have been provided in contact, to form an integrated optical circuit.

  • Patent number: 3979196
    Abstract: The undulation of hot-moulded glass is avoided when the cooling of the glass edge layers in the first phase of the moulding operation is delayed and is accelerated after completed moulding. This is achieved by using a mould of a glassy carbon having a porous structure. Prior to the moulding, the pores are filled with a gas-forming liquid or a gas. The resulting gas film between the glass and the surface of the mould is removed ater completed moulding. The pores may subsequently be filled with a cooling agent.
