The CV1141 thyratron dates from 1950 and is an elegant looking valve. The prototype was the GDT4C.
The finned structure is the anode. The control electrode, or grid, is a vertical rod placed between the cathode and surrounding anode.
The maximum operating frequency was 10,000 pulses per second. The drop across the valve was 15 - 18 Volts and the control ratio was 40.
The classic envelope is 46 mm in diameter and, excluding the B5 base pins, is 112 mm tall.
