Experiments with a Hydrogen Thyratron

Kerry Wong did some experiments with a TGI1-50/5 hydrogen thyratron: The one I picked up is a TGI1-50/5 hydrogen thyratron. As the name suggests, it uses ionized hydrogen gas as the switching medium. Hydrogen thyratron typically utilizes titanium hydride in it’s reservoir and the hydrogen gas is released when the reservoir is heated and recombined […]
