Current density

Abstract

"A method for calculating the current density passing between two parallel plane electrodes for different values of positive charges as a function of " field at the emitter to field for no charge ratio " is presented.
The problem of the potential distribution between the electrodes has been solved for one particular case in which the positive charges are assumed to be proportional to the field at the emitter. The expressions for the electric field, the velocity of charges, and the charge density as a function of the potential are also presented and plotted as a function of the distance.


The only restrictions on the derivation are those generally assumed for parallel plane electrodes, negligible initial velocities of emission, and an evacuated space"--Abstract, page ii.
