Abstract:

An investigation was made of the photo effect, in relation to the optical properties, of dispersed films of silver coated with adsorbed films of cesium, complex oxygen-cesium films, and films of cesium oxide. The results of the experiments lead to the conclusion that the photo effect of the silver particles in a silver-oxygen-cesium cathode plays an important, and occasionally the principal role in the photoelectric emission of such cathodes.
