  • Properties of metals are fundamentally determined by their electron behavior, which is largely reflected by the electron work function ( φ ). Recent studies have demonstrated that many properties of metallic materials are directly related to φ , which may provide a simple but fundamental parameter for material design. Since material properties are affected by temperature, in this article a simple model is proposed to correlate the work function with temperature, expressed as φ ( T ) = φ 0… CONTINUE READING
