Keywords: Firm - C.H.F. Müller A.G.; location Bahrenfeld Hamburg; personnel interviewed; plant; interesting items; aluminium housing; rotating anode tubes, vacuum type rectifiers; mecury vapor rectifiers, high voltage DC Sources; Betatrons; Dr. Fehr assistant to manager; Dr. Kuntke, high voltage physics, plant -undamaged - owned by Philips, but then the foreign influence had to be disguised, after the start of the war, basic design was also done in Hamburg; interesting items ...  sintered tungsten block, which has copper anode cast on it. The copper is cooled carefully to produce if possible one crystal and thereby obtain better heat conduction; rotating anode tubes. This idea is not new though the large disc model was a warte-time development. this tube will dissipate 40 kW for 1/10th second. Smaller ones will dissipate 3- and 15 kW; The speed rotation is 3000 rpm brought about by a two-pole motor .. ; Larger ones have tungsten anode with molydenum steel shaft ... ; Vacuum-type rectifiers; Mercury-Vapor Rectifiers; Betatrons Müller had built in conjunction with a Norwegian scientist a 15 million volt Betatron. This has been moved to Wrist. Dr. Fehr stated that this has been experimented with for the Luftwaffe with hope? of obtaining a death-ray for anti-aircraft work; A smaller 2 million volt betatron had been built
