Probably in a magamp (magnetic amplifier with AM) instead of diodes for driving high power ESLs or plasma speakers.

They make great rectifier diodes. Similar to mercury rectifiers, but some people say they work even better.

Connect the grid to the plate through a resistor of a few hundred ohms to get them to start but limit grid current.

Or add a phasing network and make a voltage adjustable power supply.
