Abstract : The study of field emission from semiconductor materials is reported in some detail. Items covered include: Fabrication of field emission tips, operation of tips in a field emission projection microscope, interpretation of field emission patterns, migration processes, doping of tip material, tip geometry, tip temperature, and operation in a boron-free environment. Field emission applications are reported. A study of the electrostatic focusing of high current density field emission beam is described.
