GE documents from outside the CRT department.

Doolittle 1954 Mass Spectrometer Analyses of Picture Tubes - Using a mass spectrometer to analyze vacuum impurities. This is much easier and cheaper to do today.

Dunkerley 195- Calculation of Heat Transfer for Water-Cooled Metal-Jacketed Mercury Pool Tubes - No date but likely mid-1950s.

GE Lamp Wire & Phosphors Dept 1957 Tungsten at a Glance - Physical and chemical properties of tungsten.

Roth 1959 The Stabilization of Tantalum Carbide Filaments at High Temperatures · - Tantalum carbide melts at 4150°K, 500° higher than tungsten, so is interesting as an incandescent filament. However, it is very brittle and hard to work with. This paper explores treatments to make TaC easier to handle.

Sharbaugh & Watson 1962 Conduction and Breakdown in Liquid Dielectrics - A reprint of these GE authors' article in Progress in Dielectrics.

Nalin 1965 The Ionization Guage Calibration of Color Guns - Experiments to correlate ionization current measurements with actual vacuum in color picture tubes. In 1965, GE started making its first color CRTs commercially.

Felice & Halt 1977 Installation of a Prototype Membrane Oxygen Enricher in the Lexington Lamp Plant - By enriching the oxygen fed to gas burners to 35% in a lamp factory, natural gas usage was reduced by 42%.
