"The problem in this thesis is to experimentally obtain voltage vs distance data for different angles of bevel, to determine the optimum bevel angle on the basis of minimum surface electric field, and also to determine the location of the maximum surface electric field with respect to the p-n junction. Experimental equipment is constructed and results are graphically illustrated. It is concluded that in general the maximum surface electric field decreased as the bevel angle decreased, that neglecting practical considerations the optimum bevel angle was 3⁰, and that the maximum surface electric field occurred near, but not at the p-n junction"--Abstract, page ii.
