Hi Smokey,

Surely thoriated tungsten filament tubes were available to Moray, and I would not be surprised if his work with same led to them being replaced by supposedly more efficient and much larger indirectly heated cathode types ?

Would this not be why he had them reverse connected - to accelerate charge from anode to cathode, and then collect electrons bombarded out of the thorium in the filament via grid potential oscillating circuitry ?
This method generates little excess power, hence many needed; it also generates radiation from the thorium !

What was the OA4G cathode material ?

Cheers .......... Graham.
