The width of the electrode potential region over the surface of the anode was measured in the presence of a transverse constant magnetic field in an overcompensated knudsen-type thermionic converter having a variable interelectrode gap filled by a Ba-Cs mixture. The pressure of the mixture did not exceed .02 torr. It is shown that increased anode voltage increases the width of the region near the anode surface, while increased current reduces the width.
