A grounded, parallel-plate vacuum diode illuminated by x rays generates a two-sided distribution of non-Maxwellian photoelectrons. The resulting potential hill problem may be reduced to a first-order nonlinear differential equation subject to two-point boundary conditions. An iterative APL360 program has been written to allow the user to perform on-line calculations of potentials. Numerical results are presented for several cases of incident blackbody radiation and unequal two-sided emission. Author
