    Hello all, this is my first post and I hope that some1 can provide information reffering to my questions.
    I need help concerning something that is not exactly related to IT.
    This is the link http://www.eneco.com/tech_science.html . Here you will see a diagram about a Thermoionic converter. My question is the width of the gap required to make the electron transfer optimal...or att all possible.
    The 2nd question would consist in what metals should I use for the hot and cold plates...possibly two different metals?
    The 3rd question is what glue should I use to bind metal(probably iron or copper) to ceramic. Epoxi resin would be one solution but the problem is that it evaporates at about 150C.....And I will use about 600-800C....Silicon is also an option but cannot be used cuz it will also last to about 200C. I was thinking of thermal paste adhesive...a sliver compund adhesive thermal paste. The problem is I do not know is if this will tick to ceramic.

    I need this info to make a science project.

    Any answer and any suggestion is greatly apriceated!

    There is nothing wrong with it, I just wish to prove it exists. That is my task.

    Allright I came up with another idea, instead ceramic I will use heat resistant glass. Now the only problem is again I need the bonding agent but this time between glass and copper\iron.
