The intrinsic energy spread of electron sources limits the achievable resolution of electron microscopes in both spectroscopic and spatially resolved measurements. We propose that the TM010 mode of a single radio frequency (RF) cavity be used to dramatically reduce this energy spread in a pulsed beam. We show with analytic approximations, confirmed in simulations, that the non-linear time-energy correlations that develop in an electron gun can be undone by the RF cavity running near-crest. We derive an expression that gives the required RF field strength as a function of accelerating voltage. We explore multiple applications, including EELS and SEM. By pulsing a photocathode with commercially available, high repetition-rate lasers, our scheme could yield competitive energy spread reduction at higher currents when compared with monochromated continuous-wave sources for electron microscopes.
