Abstract
Field evaporation of Ir field emitters at high temperatures T and electric fields F was studied by means of field electron, ion and desorption microscopy. An initial emission of Ir-ions was observed only from the angles of build up emitters at relatively low F. The rise of F in 1.5 times in comparison with build up stage led to formation of microprotrusions. These microprotrusions moved along the edges between the angles of Ir-single crystal and played role of the centers of nucleation of new crystal layers. The macrooutgrowths on the close- packed planes were produced by field crystal growth and there were microprotrusions always on the corners of macrooutgrowths. Field evaporation of macrooutgrowths took place at definite T and F. This evaporation was observed as `effect of collapsing rings'.
