The field electron emission (FEE) is a unique quantum-mechanical effect of electrons tunneling
from a condensed matter (solid or liquid) into vacuum. The efficiency of this emission
process is tens of millions of times higher than in other known emission processes. The
extremely high current density in FEE and the fact that no energy is consumed by the emission
process proper afford exceptionally wide possibilities for practical application of this
Currently, the FEE is being infused with new life due to emergence of vacuum microelectronics,
a principally new branch of the micro- and nanoelectronics.
Point field emission cathodes (FECs) find novel applications in the fine-resolution electron
microscopy. Auger spectroscopy, atomic-resolution electron holography, and other areas of
superfine diagnostics of atomic surfaces.
Field emission is a phenomenon described by quantum mechanics. Its emission capability is millions times higher than that of any other known types of electron emission. Nowadays this phenomenon is experiencing a new life due to wonderful applications in the atomic resolution microscopy, in electronic holography, and in the vacuum micro- and nanoelectronics in general. The main field emission properties, and some most remarkable experimental facts and applications, are described in this book.

Investing in an Uncertain Economy For Dummies (Business & Personal Finance) The only certainty in investing — and probably in life — is uncertainty. That can make investing seem like an adventure; however, it’s more like a transcontinental expedition than a day trip to an amusement park. You can’t anticipate the turbulent waters or the snowstorms you may encounter along the way, but you’ll...
