Predamage Threshold Electron Emission from Insulator and Semiconductor Surfaces


Predamage electron emission shows a dependence on fluence, bandgap and wavelength consistent with multiphoton excitation across the bandgap and inconsistent with avalanche ionization and thermionic emission models. The electron emission scales with pulselength as τ−1/2.
