Some simple methods of preparing MgO thin films on MgAg alloy with high secondary emission ratios are discussed. The oxidation procedure and a discussion of the underlying phenomena are presented. Films with a secondary yield of 12 at 600 v may be produced by oxidation in either oxygen or carbon dioxide. Results of a study of some of the factors influencing the life of a secondary emitter are given. These include the effects on the secondary emitting characteristics of evaporation products from an oxide‐coated cathode and the deterioration of the thin film under electron bombardment.
