Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Development of vacuum microelectronics, polarized electron sources, and flat displays renewed interest in field electron emission from semiconductors. In the report some results of mathematical modeling of this phenomenon are presented with electron escape probability calculated with "electrical centroid role" for 2D layer at a surface. Advantages of such approach compared to the conventional image force account are discussed for flat and nano-tip emitters. The current-voltage plots are constructed for some promising emitters.
