Abstract
It is shown that various metallic-type photocathodes when irradiated by soft X-ray emis-sion in the 1-10R energy range, have the energy distribution of secondary-emission photoelectrons only in the range of 4-7 eV(FWHM). The latter value for dielectric-type photocathodes (KC1 and NaCl) is even less and lies in the region between 1.5-2.5 eV. Furthermore, the quantum efficiency of these, dielectric-type photocathodes is almost five times higher than for the metallic ones in the same spectral range. Taking into account the rejection of pho-toelectrons with energy higher than 50 eV (although the "tail" in photoelectrons energy distribution spreads up to several keV) in image formation process, one can conclude that application of dielectric-type photocathodes for picosecond X-ray treak tubes looks very promising.
