Abstract:

The article emphasizes the necessity for a systematic study of the chemical reactions occurring during the synthesis of cathodes. The synthesis of a Cs3Sb layer is interpreted as a solid-state reaction. A three component system is described, giving the positions of components with a high quantum yield eta for an external photoelectric effect. The great number of compounds which could be used for the development of photocathodes with a high eta is pointed out. Three criteria are proposed for the search for new emission layers. Author
