I. Ionization of Cesium at Surfaces Ii. the Energy Distribution for Electrons in a Thermionic Diode Plasma Cannot Be

  • TRULY MAXWELLIAN

Abstract

Indications from voltage-current curves of thermionic power converters suggest increased ionization at, or very near, cesium-coated surfaces by low-energy electrons. Experiments have been conducted to study this phenomenon quantitatively for a low cesium concentration. The tube contained three indirectly heated tantalum surfaces surrounded by a shield… (More)
