How to build a socket for a big Russian hydrogen Thyratron tube using copper connectors made out of a pipe.
Using a hydrogen Thyratron tube to switch a Tesla Coil. The Thyratron tube replaces the noisy spark gap.
My DIY PFN for a relaxation oscillator using a hydrogen thyratron.
A hydrogen thyratron is a device capable of switching big amounts of energy. The major advantage over other thyratrons is that the deionization time is reduced by using the hydrogen gas, generated in a small reservoir inside the tube, from a metallic Hydride.
