A solid state electrochemical cell, Na0.75CoO2/sodium beta-alumina/metal grid, is presented which is capable of producing a beam of sodium vapour in UHV. Cells such as these have potential applications as a source of dopants in semiconductor fabrication. Electrochemical measurements and a new spectroelectrochemical technique provide mechanistic information regarding sodium electro-generation.
