In the field of ultra-short waves as used in radio communications, oscillators of the Barkhausen-Kurz type should play an important part. The wave-length of these is dependent on the potentials applied to the grid and plate, and on the magnitude of the filament current, and is only influenced to a small degree by the leads connected to the grid and plate electrodes. Since the oscillations are caused by a purely mechanical to and fro motion of electrons about the grid, they are somewhat weak. In order to study oscillators of this type, one was built in an attempt to confirm the work of other experimenters, and to determine their practical possibilities.
