Electron Pump - Making

Hi,

In the next week I am going to NPL for physics academy and I will be designing and building a prototype electron pump.

I've tried to look for articles or books related to electron pumps or how to build them but I simply can't find anything at all.

Does anyone have any material at all relating to electron pumps, how to build them or some of the mathematics behind them? If you do, please could you post it here? It would be greatly appreciated thank you.

I apologise for the short notice, I just don't know what else I can do to prepare for it.

Does your question pertain to electrochemistry?

Or to cathode rays? Or to some other context for "electron/proton pump"?

Mukilab, Is this where you are going?
It is always useful to give as much information as possible when asking such questions.

National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom

I did a Google search using the terms "electron pump" and got lots of ideas and suggestions.

Thank you for your replies. Yes the academy is at the National Physics Laboratory.

Since this is a physics academy I would guess that an electron pump would pertain more to physics than electrophysics, however this is just a guess. The email I received this mention that it:
" you will then use a chemical process to etch the individual part of your pump before assembling the device and testing it in our laboratory"

but otherwise it really has no specific information on the electron pump. I am sorry to be vague but I am not sure what else I could add in the first email.


@Berkeman I honestly do not know what it pertains to.

@Bobbywhy I am sorry for wasting your time. A google search was the first thing I tried to do when I received the invitation (several months ago) however at the time this was the only relevant link available (including google scholar):
http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/16/scientists-use-single-electron-pump-to-take-subatomic-particles/

Google must have re-prioritised links for that search.

Once again, I am sorry for wasting your time, I honestly did try google but I think I'll manage just reading the articles from it. If you have any insightful links or information that you can add, then please do so.
