Novel Electride Material for Enhanced electrical propulSIon Solutions


Presentation of compatibility matrix

Characterisation of the pristine C12A7:e- material in terms of work function and extractable electron current densities in vacuum and after treatment in different environments, i.e. Xenon, dirty Xenon, Krypton, Iodine, Indium, and Bismuth as vapour or plasma in contact with hot and cold specimens for compatibility analysis.

Report of NACES cathode characterization and electron emission

To document the results of the NACES C12A7:e- cathode characterization and electron emission test campaign.
