Abstract:

HIGH YIELD SECONDARY-ELECTRON SURFACES HOLD PROMISE FOR IMPROVED ELECTRON-MULTIPLYING DEVICES SUCH AS PHOTOMULTIPLIERS AND MICROCHANNEL PLATES.

PRELIMINARY WORK HAS SHOWN PROMISE, AND THIS PROJECT WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING STABLE, LONG-LIVED, LOW WORK-FUNCTION SURFACES BY ION BEAM ENHANCED DEPOSITION AND ION BEAM MIXING OF SELECTED ELEMENTS (E.G., MG, CA, AND SR) INTO ELECTRON-EMITTING SURFACES.
