Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PHOTOELECTRIC GENERATION OF ELECTRICITY
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE PRODUCTION D'ELECTRICITE PAR PHOTOELECTRICITE
Abstract:
(EN) A close spaced planer vacuum diode is constructed with a photoemissive first electrode (22, 23, 24) and a low work function second electrode (21). As a result of photon flux on said photoemissive first electrode (22, 23, 24), electrons are emitted into the vacuum space (62) and travel to said second electrode (21). This electron current may then flow through an external load (42), powering said external load (42).
(FR) Une diode à vide planar à espacement serré comprend une première électrode photoémissive (22, 23, 24) et une seconde électrode (21) à faible rendement. Il résulte du flux de photons sur la première électrode photoémissive (22, 23, 24) une émission d'électrons dans l'espace de vide (62), qui se dirigent vers la seconde électrode (21). Ce courant électronique peut ensuite traverser une charge externe (42) et l'alimenter.
