Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of three years of research on infrared photocathodes. Among the highlights covered by the report are the following discovery of the most efficient 1.06 micron photocathode, development of optimum photocathode processing procedures, quantum yield at 1.3 microns approaching that of the S-1 photosurface at 1.06 microns, empirical relations between the optimum thickness of Cs2O low-work-function surface and the wavelength, empirical relations between the yield and thickness and between the escape probability and thickness of Cs2O-activated photosurfaces, heterocathode concept, a new approach to potentially-efficient infrared photoemission, and low-temperature growth of GaAs on Ge by the Gallium-diethyl-chloride technique.
