Abstract
We studied variation efficiencies of CsI, KBr and KI- evaporated reflective planar phototcathodes with the angle of radiation incidence in the spectral range of 25-115 nm. The photocurrent increases with the photon incidence angle for short wavelengths, while it changes only approximately 5 percent at wavelengths approximately 90-115 nm. The theoretical calculations of the photocathode angular response based on the absorption length of the photons and the escape length of the photoelectronics are in a relatively good agreement with the measured data. A detailed study of the detection efficiency angular variation for the microchannel plates with CsI, KI and KBr photocathodes in the spectral range of 25-191 nm is also presented. Heat annealing of the planar photocathodes did not result in any significant variation in their angular response.
