Abstract:

The article considers the possible mechanisms of electron emission from dielectric layers deposited on a metallic base, in the presence in them of a strong electrical field. On the basis of consideration of totality of data given in literature, the conclusion is made that, depending upon actual conditions, the mechanism of emission can have different nature tunnel effect, avalanche reproduction of electrons in the layer, etc.. In connection with this, results are discussed of early investigations of the Malter-effect. Author
