Triodes, Thin films, Amorphous semiconductors
A new thin‐film tunnel triode is discussed which uses a p‐type amorphous film to achieve amplification of injected current from a tunnel cathode. It is not only the basis for a new semiconductor device but also suggests a novel method for measuring electrical properties of semiconductors.
