Technical ceramics, also known as engineered ceramics, or advanced ceramics, is the group with the highest performing mechanical, electrical, and/or thermal properties. The common technical ceramics are most commonly metal compounds combined with oxides, carbides, or nitrides.
Lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) materials have excellent properties such as high conductivity, good stability, low evaporation rate at high temperature and high emission current density. As cathode materials, they have been widely used in many fields of modern technology, such as plasma generators, strong current sources (including neutral beam injection sources for fusion research), electron microscope, mass spectrometer and some electronic devices (vacuum tube, thermal ionization converter, etc). lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) are also widely used in the fields which need high emission current, such as electron microscope, electron beam welding, discharge tube and so on.
Lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) materials have excellent electronic emission properties and anti-poisoning properties. LaB6 is one of the preferred electronic source materials for long life design of hollow cathode miniaturization. LaB6 has a good application prospect in medium and high power space electric propulsion task. Especially, with the demonstration of high power long-lived aerospace propulsion task, more and more attention has been paid to the research field of electric propulsion at home and abroad.
Lanthanum Hexaboride hollow cathode, also called lanthanum boride hollow cathode and LaB6 hollow cathode, which has excellent performance such as high conductivity, good stability, lower evaporation rate. It usually be used as the cathode material which is widely used in many fields of modern technology.
Lanthanum Hexaboride tube, also called lanthanum boride tube and LaB6 tube, which has excellent performance such as high conductivity, good stability, lower evaporation rate. It usually be used as the cathode material which is widely used in many fields of modern technology
