electron-beam welding

electron-beam welding

[i′lek‚trän ‚bēm ′weld·iŋ]
(metallurgy)
A technique for joining materials in which highly collimated electron beams are used at a pressure below 10-3 mmHg (0.1333 pascal) to produce a highly concentrated heat source; used in outer space.

As compared to the more commonly employed thermionic cathode approach for electron-beam formation, plasma cathode or plasma electron emitter approaches can produce greater emission current density, are capable of pulsed beam generation, can operate over a wide range of back-ground gas pressure, and are only weakly dependent on the residual vacuum conditions, among other advantages which make them attractive for applications such as electron-beam welding and powder cladding, modification of material surface properties, generation of electromagnetic raditaino, plasma chemical and radiation technologies, and more.
