Abstract : Permeation of hydrogen through the emitter surface of a thermionic converter is discussed. Approaches to eliminating a pressure buildup inside the converter are examined, and it is shown that a nickel window could be used to maintain a relatively low partial pressure of hydrogen. (Author)
