Abstract : A summary of the work performed during this contract is presented. This includes a study of variations in processing and composition of S-20 cathodes and the investigation of antimony films deposited from Sb and PtSb beads. Two different phases of K3Sb are described. Formation of photocathodes by sequential and simultaneous deposition from molecular beams of the constituents has been examined. The crystal structure of alkali antimonides and other photocathode systems has been studied by means of x-ray and electron diffraction. Attempts to produce shallow p-n junctions in germanium for field induced photoemission are described.
