Field emission

Field emission (FE) (also known as electron field emission) is an emission of electrons induced by external electromagnetic fields.


The theory of field emission from bulk metals was proposed by Fowler and Nordheim. A family of approximate equations, "Fowler-Nordheim equations", is named after them. Strictly, Fowler-Nordheim equations apply only to field emission from bulk metals and to other bulk crystalline solids, but they are often used-as a rough approximation-to describe field emission from other materials.
