Abstract:

A plane-parallel cesium thermionic converter was constructed, and is about to be put into operation. A second converter, which permits spectrographic determination of cesium species temperatures and densities, was designed. Analytical stu ies of plasma and she th phenomena occurring in high pressure operation of a converter are in progress. Elastic scat ering cross sections and momentum transfer cross sections for collisions of low energy were calculated and a report was issued. A literature survey of transition probabilities for transitions from the ground state in cesium was conducted a d a tabulation of experimental values made. Author
