  • Patent number: 4970392
    Abstract: A new method and apparatus for providing a stable, temporally controllable high current density electron beam from a photocathode has been developed. A low level of cesium and, possibly a stabilizing gas, is supplied to the photoemitting surface while the electron beam is being generated, thereby replenishing cesium and possibly other ions lost from the emitting surface on a continual basis.

  • Patent number: 4066411
    Abstract: A liquid-gas interface is provided between a heated reaction chamber of an N-nitroso compound detection system and a liquid chromatograph. The liquid-gas interface atomizes liquid chromatograph effluent, including the N-nitroso compounds to be measured, with a stream of carrier gas, into the reaction chamber. In the heated reaction chamber, the effluent from the interface is vaporized. Condensation of non-volatile N-nitroso compounds is avoided by preheating the liquid effluent prior to atomization.
