Abstract:
The new AWA accelerator will use the cesium telluride photocathode. Studies have been performed on this photocathode to understand its properties and to enhance its performance, especially its robustness in maintaining its high quantum efficiency. Results of such studies, including variation in its work function, will be presented.
