Abstract : An experimental program was conducted in which the low temperature, impregnated tungsten, cesium diode was extended from its original planar configuration to a cylindrical geometry. Various cylindrical converters were designed, fabricated and operated in both steady state and pulsating modes. A multiple collector device to evaluate and compare different collector materials in the same diode environment was designed and fabricated. (Author)
