High-vacuum electron tube with divergent electron gun aimed at a fluorescent screen partially obscured by a Maltese cross.
For demonstrating the linear propagation of electrons in the absence of applied electromagnetic fields by projecting the shadow of a Maltese cross onto the fluorescent screen. Application of a magnetic field using the Helmholtz Coils S allows for students to study the fundamental science of electron optics, such as beam focusing. Specifications Max. filament voltage: 6.3 V AC Max. anode voltage: 5 kV Anode current: approx. 0.1 mA at 4 kV
