Unfortunately, hafnium proved to be unsuitable as an emissive material for cathodes. In general, having a better understanding of the processes did not produce many practical results.

Work on ferrites (not a metallic, but a ceramic material) received new impetus in 1940 when a piece of Japanese material proved that it was possible to make ferrite cores with low losses. This prompted Snoek to continue his investigations after a period of despondence. From then on, the work flourished again, leading to the Ferroxcube material that after 1950 was to be applied widely in coil cores for various products. Unexpected Side Paths: Pharmaceuticals and Hot Air Engines So far, each step in the diversification of the research programme seemed quite logical in relation to the company’s product range diversification.
