Paper Abstract

A thermionic X-ray generator using Philips scandate cathodes is described for the preionization of a high repetition rate XeCl laser. Currents as high as 40A from an 8 cm long line source can be extracted from an array of 10 cathodes each having an emitting surface of 0.011 cm2 (360 A/cm2).
