Abstract

We present a new geometry for producing unusual photo yields from traditional photocathodes by exciting a surface plasmon in an underlying metal film. Photo yields calculated for this geometry exhibit an unusually strong dependence on photon polarization and angle of incidence. Some enhancement of the photoelectron yield is also found.
