A practical, in-depth description of the physics behind electron emission physics and its usage in science and technology

Electron emission is both a fundamental phenomenon and an enabling component that lies at the very heart of modern science and technology. Written by a recognized authority in the field, with expertise in both electron emission physics and electron beam physics, An Introduction to Electron Emission provides an in-depth look at the physics behind thermal, field, photo, and secondary electron emission mechanisms, how that physics affects the beams that result through space charge and emittance growth, and explores the physics behind their utilization in an array of applications.

The book addresses mathematical and numerical methods underlying electron emission, describing where the equations originated, how they are related, and how they may be correctly used to model actual sources for devices using electron beams. Writing for the beam physics and solid state communities, the author explores applications of electron emission methodology to solid state, statistical, and quantum mechanical ideas and concepts related to simulations of electron beams to condensed matter, solid state and fabrication communities.
* Provides an extensive description of the physics behind four electron emission mechanisms--field, photo, and secondary, and how that physics relates to factors such as space charge and emittance that affect electron beams.
* Introduces readers to mathematical and numerical methods, their origins, and how they may be correctly used to model actual sources for devices using electron beams
* Demonstrates applications of electron methodology as well as quantum mechanical concepts related to simulations of electron beams to solid state design and manufacture
* Designed to function as both a graduate-level text and a reference for research professionals

Introduction to the Physics of Electron Emission is a valuable learning tool for postgraduates studying quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, solid state physics, electron transport, and beam physics. It is also an indispensable resource for academic researchers and professionals who use electron sources, model electron emission, develop cathode technologies, or utilize electron beams.

Kevin Jensen, PhD is a research physicist in the Materials and Systems Branch, Materials Science and Technology Division, at the Naval Research Laboratory. Since 2001, he has been a visiting senior research scientist at the University of Maryland's Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). Dr. Jensen joined the theory section of the Vacuum Electronics Branch at NRL in 1990. He earned a doctorate in physics from New York University in 1987. He has been and is Principal Investigator for several research programs investigating the application of electron sources (particularly field and photoemission sources) to microwave devices and Free Electron Lasers. Over the years, he has authored or coauthored over 150 articles and conference proceedings. He became a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2009 for his contributions to the theory and modeling of electron emission sources for particle accelerators and microwave tubes. He presently serves on the Editorial Board of Journal of Applied Physics.
