  • After I make these materials, I incorporate the lanthanum hexaboride nanowires into a cold field emission device and test its performance.

    Media Newswire

  • The Applied Physics Technologies (APTech) lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) and cerium hexaboride (CeB6or CeBix) cathodes are now available through Electron Microscopy Sciences.
