Space Charge in Ionization Detectors
The effect on the operation of a vacuum diode of a spatially varying distribution of free electrons, commonly called space charge, was first considered by Child [1] and Langmuir [2]. In that example
Doped diamond thin film electron sources for thermionic energy conversion
Thermionic energy conversion is a process that allows direct conversion of heat into electrical energy without mechanically moving components. In a thermionic converter electrons from the emitter
