Description

In conjunction with the Bendix Corporation and, gratefully, with the support of the AFOSR, we are currently investigating the exo-electron emission behavior of metals. Since our primary objective is to try to obtain a much better basic understanding of the mechanism or mechanisms of exo-electron emission, we are adopting a rather basic approach to this problem which means that we are using essentially pure metals and, more importantly, the measurements are being carried out in very carefully-controlled gaseous environments. In particular, these include controlled partial pressures of various pure gases such as oxygen, water vapor, and carbon monoxide, as well as ultra high vacuum measurements.

Exo-electron Emission from Metals
