Abstract Photocathodes that have a low mean transverse energy (MTE) are crucial to the development of compact X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFEL) and ultrafast electron diffraction (UED) experiments. For FELs, low MTE cathodes result in a lower requirement for electron energy when lasing at a defined energy, and for a defined electron energy result in lasing at higher energy. For UED experiments, low MTE cathodes give a longer coherence length, allowing measurements on larger unit cell materials. A record low MTE of 5 meV has been recently demonstrated from a Cu (100) surface when measured near the photoemission threshold and cooled down to 30 K with liquid Helium [*]. For UED and XFEL applications that require a high charge density, the low quantum efficiency of Cu (100) near threshold necessitates the use of a high laser fluence to achieve the desired charge density [**]. At high laser fluences the MTE is limited by nonlinear effects, and therefore it is necessary to investigate near photoemission threshold at these high laser fluences. In this paper we report on nonlinear, near-threshold photoemission from a Cu (100) cathode, and its effect on the MTE.
