Nonlinear organic compounds may have important applications in novel laser-controlled electron beam devices and systems. Films of a few hundred angstrom thickness are vacuum deposited on metal substrates. When illuminated with intense laser light in a vacuum, these coatings can produce high emission current densities. A survey of organic materials evaluated at three laser wavelengths shows that some compounds produce more photocurrent than metals.
