Lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) materials

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. LaB6 is one of the preferred electronic source materials for the long-life design of hollow cathode miniaturization. LaB6 has a good application prospect in medium and high power space electric propulsion tasks. Especially, with the demonstration of high power long-lived aerospace propulsion tasks, more and more attention has been paid to the research field of electric propulsion at home and abroad.
