Optical transmissions of CsI and NaBr vapor are measured at 248 nm. Absorption of these representative alkali metal halides saturates at 10–100 mJ cm-2 fluence. Ratio of small-signal to saturated absorption coefficients is of order 10.

    It is shown that irradiation of CsI and CsI(Tl) crystals containing carbonate and hydroxyl ions induces radiation defects there in the form of color centers, HCO[sup -, sub 3] ions, and H[sub 2]O molecules. HCO[sup -, sub 3] ions are formed in the bulk of crystals, whereas water molecules are...

    Coincidence counting methods were used to examine the desorption of secondary ions from a CsI surface via keV atomic and polyatomic projectile impacts. A correlation between the emission of I- and CsI-2 secondary ions was attributed to the common chemical origin of the ions. The degree to which...

    Reduction of the breakdown voltage in plasma panel discharge cells calls for electrode coatings with a high secondary-electron emission yield. MgO is most widely used in this field because of its high secondary-electron yield, which is primarily governed by ion-induced emission processes. To...

    Cesium-iodide (CsI)-coated graphite cathodes are promising electron sources for high power microwave generators, but the mechanism driving the improved emission is not well understood. Therefore, an ab initio modeling investigation on the effects of thin CsI coatings on graphite has been carried...
