Abstract

The primary objective of the program has been to investigate the properties of the field emitter under a wide range of operating temperatures and field, also to study the various phenomena associated with field emission at higher current densities than had been previously attained under controlled conditions. A secondary objective, of technological importance, involved investigation of methods by which field emission could be stabilized at useful levels of current and voltage for possible application as a cathode in electron devices.
