A3
Abstract:
A scanning tunneling microscope tip (15) is used to direct a rapidly switched stream of electrons at a target surface (12) by applying an electrical bias which brings the tip (16) close to the auto-emission threshold, and then using a pulsed laser (18) source directed at the tip (16) to trigger emission.
