Development of higher efficiency photocathodes for gas filled detectors

 Keywords:

  • Photocathodes and their production
  • X-ray detectors
  • Gaseous detectors

 Abstract:
This work concerned the development of a new generation of photocathodes for X-rays gas filled detectors.
The thesis contains a description of the monte carlo studies, as well as experimental tests of various photocathodes which were carried out during the thesis work.
Last, interesting results concerning CsI3 as an interesting precursor to CsI (as a secondary emitter) are given.
