Abstract

The operation of Geiger-Mueller tubes requires D.C. voltages ranging up to two kilo-volts and currents of the order of a few hundred micro-amperes. There are two types of voltage supplies which can be used for furnishing these high D.C. voltages. In the conventional high-voltage supply, the output voltage is obtained by rectifying and filtering the high A.C. voltage obtained from an iron core step-up transformer operating from the sixty cycle transformer for high voltages. Practical transformers therefore are cumbersome and heavy and are capable of furnishing currents much larger than those usually required.
