Description

Photocathodes are key elements in high brightness RF photoinjectors. A proper selection of the photocathodes has a relevant impact on the properties of the generated electron beam. In this presentation the main photocathode parameters are introduced and their effect on generated beam discussed. Moreover, a review of the production process, characterization and use of these materials is presented.
