Schwarz - Dr. Maier Telefunken - Dr. Stockmeyer - Dr. Schnappanf? - Dr. Schünk - Dr. Ebe; German trigitron persons situated in the Russian Zone were inaccessible .. ; application of thyratrons to radar pulse modulators ... exceeding 200 kW - 1000 kW and a helium filled gave a peak power of approximately 250 kW; the potential advantages of hydrogene were appriciated and indeed a fair amount of use had been made of it in contrast with its apparent neglect in England ... ; Helium seems to have been the filling used for the radar thyratrons. This gas has not given good results, either in America or in England ... as it was, the greatest they achieved seems to have been 250 kW; ... work done by AEG (A.E.G.) .. ; Dr. Hoffmann of S&H Siemensstadt - Steimel & Dr. Jacobi and Putzer did thyratron development work for Siemens .. only Putzer was still in the Western Zone .. ; Dr. Kleen .. Dr. Koch and Dr. Aarens of AEG leading people on thyratrons; Dr. Nippold AEG Hohenzollern Dam Berlin knew the the AEG staff well until his death in 1943 Dr. Glaser was in charge of thyratron development he had an international reputation his assistant Dr. Koch .. thyratrons was dealt with in 1941 ...  Dr. Mohr took over. Dr. Bacher and dr. Straub of Bosch, Seidenstrasse Stuttgart; Herr Grother Bad Cannstadt Buchenhaldenstrasse had developped a suitable hydrogen thyratron; Dr. Midius Technische Hochschule Munich had worked with Prof. Schumann ... ; Mr. Muth and Andrieu of Telefunken;  Prof. Marx of Braunschweig; Dr. Keitner had worked on stroboscopes; Dr. Hermann Technische Physikalische Werkstätten See-Strasse Reinigendorf Berlin; Dr. Siegenbein of AEG developed impulse generators for the transmitters; Dr. Werner; Dr. Siegenbein of AEG; Dr. Steinbeck (wrongly written Stainbeck); Si/6 (SI/6) helium filled thyratron made by AEG; Si/3 (SI/3) He filled; Dr. Aaerens? working with Siegenbein at AEG Clausthal-Zellerfeld; Dr. Koch gave his opinion that good life in hydrogen thyratrons is entirely a matter of purity of materials and of saturating the electrodes with hydrogen; LV20 ≈ US 715B but made on a pressed glass base ratings ... ; A barium aluminium getter was used, cathodes were aged over a period of 24 hours the H.T. voltage being gradually increased up to 18 kV; Dr. Siegenbein AEG high power radar set, the second set was made by the firm ELAC in Kiel modulator valves AV1012 AEG ..; It was intended to replace the AV1012 by the LV21 which was in further development ... RL12T75 had been developed for pulse operation. It was constructed as a triode with two cathodes two grids and two anodes each being connected in parallel; SEE Trochelmann's DACHSIGEL part two ; LG201 and LG203; Dr. Floriet; Dr. Ewest's home in Lankewitz Berlin LG203 was filled to a pressure of 8 atmospheres with 62.5% Argon, 17.5% Air and 20% Nitrogen. The filling was carried out by liquifying the argon by means of liquid nitrogen. Krypton filling had been tried but was abondoned as supplies of this were not easily obtained as of argon with which filling was also easier .
