New 3-D models illustrate the effect of material roughness on electrons emitted from the surface of a photocathode
Photocathodes used in linear accelerator facilities, free electron lasers and advanced X-ray light sources generate a beam of electrons to probe matter at an atomic level. Advances in materials science have improved the composition ...
