Title: Radio frequency field immersed ultra-low temperature electron source

Disclosed below are representative embodiments of methods, apparatus, and systems for generating electrons. For example, certain embodiments comprise a charge gating diamond QED based electron source, which can be suspended within the RF cavity of an electron injection system in a superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) electron accelerator. Embodiments of the disclosed technology are capable of producing low temperature (cold) electron beams, where "temperature" refers to the transverse energy in the extracted electron beam (or beam emittance). Embodiments of the disclosed technology can also exhibit enhanced charge replenishment capabilities by virtue of the material selected to suspend the electron source within the RF cavity of the electron injection system.
