Cerium Boride (CeB6) Ceramics
Cerium boride, also known as cerium hexaboride or CeB6, is a refractory ceramic material. The main application of cerium hexaboride is a hot cathode coating or hot cathode made of cerium hexaboride crystal. It usually works at a temperature of 1450°C.
Cerium hexaboride, like lanthanum hexaboride, evaporates slowly during cathode operation. CeB6 positive electrode under 1850 K working condition, CeB6 should maintain the optimal shape for a longer time, so the service life is longer. Although the process is 30% slower than lanthanum boride, cerium boride deposits are reported to be more difficult to remove.
Cerium boride application
The main application of cerium hexaboride (CeB6) is the hot cathode. Its applications include:
-Thermionic emission (cathode)
-Plasma source for plasma-enhanced coating (PECVD)
-Vacuum Electron Beam Welding Machine
-Electron beam surface reformer
-Electron beam lithography device
-Transmission Electron Microscopy
-scanning electron microscope
-Surface analysis device
– Radiation therapy equipment
