Title: Modeling emission lag after photoexcitation

Abstract

A theoretical model of delayed emission following photoexcitation from metals and semiconductors is given. Its numerical implementation is designed for beam optics codes used to model photocathodes in rf photoinjectors. The model extends the Moments approach for predicting photocurrent and mean transverse energy as moments of an emitted electron distribution by incorporating time of flight and scattering events that result in emission delay on a sub-picosecond level. The model accounts for a dynamic surface extraction field and changes in the energy distribution and time of emission as a consequence of the laser penetration depth and multiple scattering events during transport. Usage in the Particle-in-Cell code MICHELLE to predict the bunch shape and duration with or without laser jitter is given. The consequences of delayed emission effects for ultra-short pulses are discussed.
