Abstract:

The work described in this report deals with the measurement of particle emission from metal surfaces irradiated with light flux densities of 50-70 Mwsq cm, as well as calculations of the velocity distribution of the particles from the measured pulse shapes. Measurements in the quadrupole mass spectrometer have shown that, besides the thermal gas desorption, the neutral particle emission contains a photon pulse and several high velocity non-zero- mass pulses. Tentative assignments of masses and energies of the high speed neutral pulses are made.
