Why Ps-fraction increased dramatically?

If we assume that the Ps- is formed from positrons in the bottom of the positron band,

holds for the Ps- emission,

where and are the energy levels of two electrons measured from the vacuum level.

Ps- fraction :

: electron density of states

If is constant below

the top of the conduction band,

This is too low to explain the experimental results.

Why Ps-fraction increased dramatically?

The Ps-formation depends on the overlap of a e+ wave function

and two e- wave functions just outside of the surface,

which depend on their corresponding work functions.

The Ps- formation mechanism

should be affected

by the Cs deposition.
