This report presents the results of the past year's work in a continuing
program to investigate basic processes in thermionic energy conversion
important to a thermionic nuclear power plant for naval applications. The
previous work was reported in AI-06799, "First Summary Report of Basic
Research in Thermionic Conversion Processes." The subjects discussed in
the present report are:
Statistical Mechanics of Cesium Adsorption
Space Charge Analysis for Low Pressure Thermionic
Emission Requirements for Removal of Space Charge
Unignited Mode of Thermionic Converters
Interpretation of Volt-Ampere Characteristics
Vaporization and Deposition at Cesium Covered
Here’s what’s next.
