Paper Abstract

Microscopic electron sources are of current interest due to their potential of initiating a high energy electron beam at high repetition rates and short pulse widths. This paper describes a possible new microscopic electron source, via model, based on the microchannel plate concept. The model predicts current densities on the order of 1 A/cm2. Further, with an appropriate bulk electron injection scheme, current densities of greater than 10 A/cm2 are predicted.
