A lead glass to copper connection for high vacuum use, such as in an electron gun assembly, can be accomplished using heat and compression during the bonding process. As shown in the figure, a lead glass envelope of the electron gun assembly is connected to a copper housekeeper type connector which in turn is fastened to a blank copper flange.
