Abstract : The development of experimental diodes to operate at extremely high temperatures with mixed vapors in the interelectrode spaces is discussed. Attempts at calculating the operational effects of multiple adsorbates on refractory substrates are presented. The theoretical discussion of dielectric breakdown in the environment such as would be found in a nuclear thermionic system is discussed. (Author)
