The experimental measurements of the angular distribution of photoemitted electrons from cesium-oxygen activated p-type GaAs surfaces shows a highly directional photoemission approximately independent of the surface orientation. The mathematical model explaining these observations shows the expected Lambertian distribution is modulated by a strong exponential function resulting from the attainment of negative electron affinity conditions.
