    magnetic fields have many applications in electronics. Because a vacuum must be provided in the form of an evacuated enclosure in which the electrons can move without collisions with gas molecules, these devices were called vacuum tubes or electron tubes in the US, and thermionic valves in Britain. In , Thomas Edison observed thatFile Size: KB. Electron tube, also called vacuum tube, device usually consisting of a sealed glass or metal-ceramic enclosure that is used in electronic circuitry to control a flow of the common applications of vacuum tubes are amplification of a weak current, rectification of an alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), generation of oscillating radio-frequency (RF) .

      Thermionic Emission Makes for the Warmest Sound Posted on Ma Ma by Eric Juang I’ve played in my fair share of rock bands, and constantly heard guitar players tout on and on about their “awesome tube amps, dude” and how “they just sound so much warmer” and “nah, I can’t go out tonight, I spent too much money.

    The Fleming valve, also called the Fleming oscillation valve, was a thermionic valve or vacuum tube invented in by Englishman John Ambrose Fleming as a detector for early radio receivers used in electromagnetic wireless was the first practical vacuum tube and the first thermionic diode, a vacuum tube whose purpose is to conduct current in one . Vacuum tubes rely on a process called thermionic emission: Heating the cathode causes it to shed electrons into the surrounding vacuum. The current in .

Even though most of us view vacuum tubes as electrical antiques, their basic principle of operation (electrons emitted from a heated cathode) still finds application in cathode ray and X-ray tubes and various RF microwave vacuum tubes, such as triodes, tetrodes, klystrons, magnetrons, and traveling wave tubes.

Thermionic tubes are still used in some applications, such as the magnetron used in microwave ovens, certain high-frequency amplifiers, and amplifiers that audio enthusiasts [ who. ] prefer for their "warmer" tube sound. Not all electronic circuit valves/electron tubes are vacuum tubes.

By J.I. Agnew. Vacuum tubes, also known as thermionic valves, or just valves in the UK, are electronic devices whose operation is based on thermionic emission. This is defined as the emission of electrons from the surface of a solid, in proportion to temperature.

The physics of this process concerns the relationship of the thermal energy of the electron with the work function.

The cathode is heated so electron evaporation is possible, and a potential difference V A attracts electrons from the cathode to the File Size: KB.

Electron tube - Electron tube - Common tubes and their applications: Many types of electron tubes are involved in RF electric power generation and amplification. Another class of electron tubes is employed for rectification and switching (thyratrons and ignitrons). Some vacuum and gas tubes are designed merely to illuminate a target, as in the case of a television tube.

The vacuum tube. The vacuum tube has been called the most important electrical device introduced in the twentieth century. It has given rise to the field of electronics, making possible radio, long-distance telephone, sound motion pictures, television, radar, electronic computers, etc. The basic working principle of a vacuum tube is a phenomenon called thermionic emission.

It works like this: you heat up a metal, and the thermal energy knocks some electrons loose. InEnglish physicist John Ambrose Fleming took advantage of this effect to create the first vacuum tube device, which he called an oscillation : Michael Alba.

We see vacuum tubes used in the broadcast transmitters that radio and TV stations send out their signals with. We also see vacuum tubes used in radar applications.cathode (a negatively charged electrode that is the source of electrons entering an electrical device).

A vacuum tube consists of cathode (also called as filament), anode (also called as plate), and electrode (also called as grid).
