New Photocathode Ideas
- Laura Silvia Monaco (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare)
Metal photocathodes are widely utilised for their ease of use, high durability and fast response time. However, the high work function (WF) and low quantum efficiency (QE) typically observed in metals necessitates the use of high power deep UV lasers. Metal oxide films on metals have been shown to produce a surface with a lower WF and improved QE* whilst maintaining photocathode...
