Claim of US Patent No. 9,209,002

1. A Geiger-Muller counter tube, comprising:
an enclosing tube that is at least partially cylindrical and has a space which is sealed;
an anode conductor, including an anode electrode and a linear first metal lead portion, the anode electrode being arranged
inside the space and formed in a rod shape, the first metal lead portion being connected to the anode electrode and supported
at an end of the enclosing tube;

a cathode conductor, including a cathode electrode in a cylindrical shape and a linear second metal lead portion, the cathode
electrode surrounding a peripheral area of the anode electrode inside the space, the second metal lead portion being connected
to the cathode electrode and supported at the end of the enclosing tube; and

an inert gas and a quenching gas, being sealed inside the space, wherein
the cathode electrode has a side surface through a part of which a through-hole passes;
wherein
the cathode electrode is formed in a cylindrical shape with a rectangular metal sheet, and a pair of sides of the metal sheet
facing to be separately spaced, and

the through-hole is a slit formed where the pair of sides of the metal sheet face to be separately spaced.
