More info

Lanthanum Hexaboridepart, also called lanthanum boride parts and LaB6 parts, 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, such as: plasma generator, rf ion source, mass spectrometer, electronic micro mirror and some electronics.

 

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.
