    I seem to be unabe to find U-I characteristic of a gas diode (I'm not sure if it is actually a diode, or should it be declared as a gass-filled tube).
    if anyone know how this looks like, or know where on the web can I find it, I would apreciate it.

    Been thinking on this [post and question here.
    What is confusing is the reference of the old is I meant amplification, and I am thinking the U is the small greek letter u. Please correct me if not here. u is the characteristic of the tube but that referenced to a triode and amplification.
    Here is a good page on the tubes with a little history and some formula applications.
    Let us know what references you are discussing here

    Are sure that it isn't V-I characteristic? That would make sense. :blink:
