e-Black Surfaces
STFC's Accelerator Science department has developed a method of laser ablation to reduce secondary as well as photo-electron yields in particle accelerators and RF waveguides to less than 1. Secondary electron emission is an unwanted effect limiting the performance of high energy colliders, storage rings and dumping rings such as the Large Hadron C...
