Would you prefer a material with a high melting point or a low melting point to be used as a cathode in a diode?
We will prefer a material with high melting point to be used as the cathode in a diode. The material of the cathode of a diode should be resistant to high temperature, have high melting point and be electrically conductive because thermionic emission occurs at high temperature.
