Abstract
Experimental measurements made on a single Spindt-type molybdenum field emitter are correlated with a simple analytic model of the electron distribution. The measurements were made by using a nanofabricated detector whose position relative to the emitted was determined using laser interferometry. Methods used to correlate theory with experiment are explained, and the dependence of the beam profile on tip sharpness, gate diameter, anode distance, and tip work function are examined. It is shown how the analytic model may be extended to find the trajectories needed for particle simulations. Analysis has shown that the rms spread angle is approximately 20 degrees.
