In this thesis, an experimental setup for the production of low energy electron beams based on Explosive Electron Emission (EEE) is used to study the transmission of pulsed low energy electron beams through silicon nitride foils. The electron beam density before and after the foil are measured. The experimental values fully agree with the theoretical estimates. Work done in this thesis is a judicious combination of vacuum technology, pulsing of high voltage sources, thermal physics and electronics. Dia rams and -photo uaphs of the experimental setup arl-I presented. A paper was 9 presented at the American Vacuum Society (AVS) symposium at Rutgers University in New Brunswick in May 1997 to the effect of this work.
