Recent measurements(1) on the thermionic emission from a platinum surface during outgassing have brought to the attention of the writer an empirical relation between the thermionic constants for a metallic surface which was discovered by Richardson(2) for tungsten and platinum in 1915, but which has apparently been completely neglected in formulating the various theories of the emission process.
