The emission of positronium negative ions from Cs deposited W(100) surfaces has been studied. A dramatic change in the emission efficiency was observed upon coating a W(100) surface with Cs. The conversion efficiency (the fraction of incident slow positrons yielding the ions) of the W(100) target with a 2.2 × 10 14 atoms cm −2 Cs coverage, measured over a time interval of 3 × 10 3 s immediately after deposition, was found to be 1.25%, which is two orders of magnitude higher than that obtained for the clean, u…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
