Kownacki and Ratcliffe1 have previously described an experimental method of investigating electron inertia effects in thermionic vacuum tubes. By replacing the electrons in a triode by positive ions of cæsium, of mass 25 × 104 times greater, they were able to slow down the effective transit times involved by a factor of about 500. In this way they… CONTINUE READING
