Aspects of the preparation process and performance degradation are two major problems of photocathodes. The lack of a means for dynamic quantum efficiency measurements results in the inability to observe the inhomogeneity of the cathode surface by fine structural analysis and in real time.Here we present a simple and scalable technique for in situ real-time quantum efficiency diagnosis. An incoherent light source provides uniform illumination on the cathode surface, and solenoid magnets are…

Rapid thermal emittance and quantum efficiency mapping of a cesium telluride cathode in an rf photoinjector using multiple laser beamlets

Thermal emittance and quantum efficiency (QE) are key figures of merit of photocathodes, and their uniformity is critical to high-performance photoinjectors. Several QE mapping technologies have been
