Robust GaN-Based Photocathodes for High-Current RF Electron Injectors
Advanced high-intensity electron guns, used as injectors in electron accelerators, utilize photocathodes as electron source. There is an immediate need for the development of high efficiency photocathodes capable of robust operation at high emission currents. This project is directed toward the development of a GaN-based long-life photocathode for application in high-current electron guns.
