Products

Lanthanum Boride is mainly made into Lanthanum Boride (LaB6) hot cathode which electronic source is used as an electronic source for electron microscopy, electron-beam exposure machines. LaB6 is also used as a size/strain standard in X-ray powder diffraction to calibrate instrumental broadening of diffraction peaks. Lanthanum Boride powder can be further processed to various shapes of rods, tubes, discs, and specially designed forms.

Application

Lanthanum hexaboride LaB6 is an inorganic non-metallic compound composed of low-valent boron and rare metal element lanthanum. It has a special crystal structure and the basic characteristics of a boride. From the point of view of material properties, LaB6 is a refractory metal compound with a cubic crystal structure, with high hardness, high electrical conductivity, high melting point, low thermal expansion coefficient, and good chemical stability. At the same time, lanthanum hexaboride The emission current density is high, the evaporation rate is low at high temperature, ion bombardment resistance, strong electric field resistance, and radiation resistance are strong. It has been used in cathode materials, electron microscopes, electron beam welding, discharge tubes and other fields that require large emission currents.
