Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In a series of measurements carried out on several types of plate-to-grid-coupled univibrators (mono-stable multivibrators) triggered by negative pulses it was found that the dead time strongly depends on the amplitude of the triggering pulse. It has been proved experimentally that this effect leads to time lags if the univibrator is triggered by pulses of a Geiger-Muller counter.
