Description

This book fills the gap for a textbook describing this kind of electron beam source in a systematic and thorough manner: from physical processes of electron emission to examples of real plasma electron sources and their applications.
Preface
1 Low-Pressure Discharges for Plasma Electron Sources
2 Electron Emission from Plasma
3 Plasma Sources for Axially Symmetric Electron Beams
4 Generation of Large-Cross-Section Beams in Plasma-Cathode Systems
5 Some Applications of Plasma-Cathode Electron Sources
Conclusion
""It is an up-to-date review and summary of this important subfield of applied plasma physics"" (Metall, February 2008)
