A comprehensive experimental and theoretical analysis is presented for the electron‐rich, unignited mode of a cesium‐vapor thermionic diode. The theoretical inverse spacing dependence of the apparent saturation current is found to be in agreement with experiment. The theoretical and experimental coefficient of this dependence are found to be in agreement if one assigns a value Pc=700 cm-1 Torr-1 to the electron‐neutral collision probability. This value is consistent with other available information. Potential distributions are calculated. Full theoretical and experimental volt‐ampere curves are compared. Some of the assumptions in the theoretical analysis are examined in detail.
