    Abstract: Ion chamber 20 receives electrons from cathode 28 and produces ions by electron bombardment in discharge plasma chamber 20. Ions are extracted through ion optics including screen 22 and accelerator electrode 24. Higher ion densities in the center of the discharge chamber are reduced by spoiler 42 which is operated at a potential between cathode and anode potential. This reduces double ionization and central peaking to provide a more uniform ion beam through the optics. By employing laterally positioned spoiler elements beam steering can be accomplished. The ion source is useful wherever a uniform beam profile is desirable as in ion implantation. Controlling the direction of beam density is useful in ion machining and in ion thrusters for space application.

  • Patent number: 4045700
    Abstract: An X-ray image intensifier which includes a metal-ceramic bulb or tube, whose metal components are vacuum-tightly soldered to each other under the interposition of the electrically insulating ceramic. Through the weak conductivity of the surface of the ceramic portion there is achieved a potential distribution which, in the neighborhood of the solder, still so extensively conforms to the solder where no potential dropoff will be present and thereby also no reason for the producing of a peak discharge. The potential varies significantly only over longer distances.

  • Patent number: 4000432
    Abstract: Intensifier tubes for x-rays or low-light levels form an image of photoelectrons which is focused on a fluorescent viewing screen. Stray magnetic fields, including the earth's field, bend the electron trajectories and distort the image. Magnetic shielding has been used around the tube, leaving the image-receiving end open. Magnetic field leaking through the open end is reduced by extending the end of the shield around the image-receiving aperture inward and forward of the edge of the tube.

  • Patent number: 3979622
    Abstract: The invention relates to a headlight as well as an incandescent lamp which is suitable for being arranged in a reflector by means of which an anti-dazzle beam is produced. For that purpose the headlight and the incandescent lamp comprise a filament and a cap of which two edges extend along the filament. The distance from at least one of the edges to the longitudinal axis of the filament at the area of the end of the filament which is remote from the rear end of the reflector is larger than in any other place along the axis of the filament.

  • Patent number: 3962596
    Abstract: A filament shield comprising a body with a recess therein. The recess has a base, which may be planar and from which the filament to be shielded is spaced, and is bounded on two opposed edges by a pair of surfaces. Each of these surfaces has a linear inner edge inclined with respect to an axis along which the filament lies and spaced therefrom, and an outer edge inclined to the axis at a greater angle than the respective inner edge.A lamp unit comprising a parabolic reflector and a filament shield as defined above, the filament shield being disposed so that the axis of the filament lies on the focal axis of the reflector.
