Abstract

See full text

A free space electron switch is disclosed. The switch, which is useful in high speed telecommunications traffic, has an array of cathodes for emitting free space electrons. A grid of aiming anodes and, a focusing grid for forming electrons from the cathode into an electron beam are provided. A plurality of output ports for receiving the electron beam from each cathode is provided, the output ports having a phosphor coating facing the side of the channel remote from the cathode.
