Dr. Jacobs and Prof. Morgan group develop new electron emitters

June 2016

CMG members Dr. Ryan Jacobs, Mrs. Tam Mayeshiba, and Professor Dane Morgan have used ab initio methods to explore work functions of perovskites and identified a promising candidate compound that could be used in next-generation vacuum electronic devices for long-distance communications and thermionic energy converters. A news release can be found on the College of Engineering website. Please see the published paper in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
