Abstract:

Techniques used to obtain high vacua, to provide clean surfaces, to deposit Na on these surfaces and to measure their work functions are described. A method used to fabricate hemispherical grids is also included. Work function, electron diffraction and secondary emission studies of sodium covered germanium are presented. Preparations for a field-emission study of the same system are described. In the study of the compound Na3Sb, preliminary data on the details of film formation have been obtained and the inert atmosphere facility for the preparation of the bulk material has been completed. A brief description of the apparatus to be used in the study of anomalous photovoltaic effects in Ge films is given.
