Abstract:

The report presents some of the results of the past years work in a continuing study of thermionic converters. It is a study of the basic processes in thermionic diodes, and the application of this basic information to the achievement of practical thermionic energy conversion. The studies presented are Cesium Adsorption measurements Cesium Adsorption Study Using Ellipsometry and Auger Spectroscopy Cesium Structure on Tungsten Cesium Adsorption Theory at Higher Coverages and Non-Saturation Phenomena in Thermionic Converters Collector Carbon Deposits.
