The greatest difficulty in obtaining higher potentials in tubes is due to autoelectronic emission from the electrode surfaces. A study of emission from unconditioned metals is described leading to the result that either loose fine particles in a tube, or else the targets of emission will probably have more to do with the quantity of emission than will the kind and "conditioning" of the cathode itself.
