Abstract : A theoretical model for the ionization of cesium vapor in the presence of a hot body and in the absence of an applied voltage sufficient to accelerate electrons to the ionization potential of cesium has been formulated. The model is predicated on an inelastic two-body collision mechanism involving cesium atoms excited by light radiated from a hot body. (Author)
