Second Annual Technical Summary Report for Basic Research in Thermionic Energy Conversion. Covering Period November 1, 1961 to October 31, 1962

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Results of work in a continuing program to investigate basic processes in thermionic energy conversion related to thermionic nuclear power plants for naval applications are reported. The areas in which progress is reported include statistical mechanics of Cs adsorption, space charge analysis for low pressure thermionic diodes, emission requirements for removal of space charge barriers, unignited mode of thermionic converters, interpretation of volt-ampere characteristics, vaporization and deposition at Cs-covered surfaces, and Cs purification.
