Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A technique is suggested for increasing the emission-active region part of metal-dielectric-metal cathodes because of the creation of microscopic bulges on one electrode with the help of photolithography. The technology of fabrication of a thin-film Al-SiO2-Al structure with size ≈1 μm is described. A mechanism of emission current increase is proposed.
