Abstract:

Field emission runs were made with W and Ta emission tips reacting with the residual gases of the vacuum system at rates which appeared to be closely related to the residual O pressure, a totally thermal technique was utilized for obtaining essentially clean Ta emitter tips, and two O sources were designed and initial trials carried out.
