FEM – zasada działania

In its simplest form, FEM consit of a shap needle emitter and a fluorecent screen as shown in Fig. 1. By appling negative field to the emitter, electrons are emitted from the surface of the emitter to the direction of the screen. The image contrast appears due to the difference in current densities of electron, which originated from the difference in work functions and electric field on the emitter surface (Fowler-Nordheim relation).


fem historia
FEM - historia

The field emission microscope was invented by Erwin Mueller in 1936. This instrument approached, for the first time, to view a surface on a scale of atomic dimensions and yet simultaneously allowed one to follow rapid changes at the surface.

Erwin Wilhelm Müller was born in Berlin on June 13, 1911,

He died on May 17, 1977.

FEM – applications

Field emission has been extensively used in the characterization of surface structures and electronic properties. This technique has given a wealth of information and understanding of surfaces, metal and gas interface systems before the advent of many other techniques for surface analysis. Adsorption of atoms in the submonolayer, monolayer amounts of adatoms, desorption and surface diffusion measurements can be carried out using field emission techniques. The analysis of field emission current fluctuation can yield quantitative information regarding the surface phenomena occurring on the emitter 

    When the metal under study is the cathode for field emission, its surface condition particularly its surface cleanliness can be judged from the emission pattern. At this point, it becomes clear that role of Ultra High Vacuum is extremely prominent in field emission experiments, as it has an extreme surface sensitivity to change the emission pattern even in the submonolayer regime.  A base pressure less than 10-10  mbar needs to be maintained during the experiments.  Also since, field emission occurs from all single crystal facets, field emission microscopy is best suited to study these facets (crystal planes) and to compare the results under identical conditions in single experiments. These features make the relevance of results of field emission microscopy studies important and unique among other standard surface analytical tools.

Do ostrza próbki K (krzywizna powierzchni rzędu 100 A) przykłada się potencjał dodatni (około 10 kV). Atomy helu w polu elektrycznym ostrza ulegają polaryzacji i zderzają się z ostrzem. Po kilkukrotnym odbiciu - znajdując się w strefie ‘S’ ulegają jonizacji poprzez tunelowanie elektronu do metalu. Zjonizowany dodatni jon zdąża radialnie do katody (ekran fluorescencyjny P) .

The specimen is in the form of a sharp tip. A positive potential is applied to the tip such that a very large electric field is present at the tip. The ambient gas surrounding the tip is usually Helium or Neon at a pressure of 1-3 x 10 to the minus 3 millibar. The gas atoms move towards the tip and strike it. The gas atoms may strike the surface many times, before an electron from the gas atom tunnels into the metal tip leaving the gas atom positively ionised. The gas atom is then accelerated away from the tip where it strikes a fluorescent screen. The net effect of many gas atoms is to create a pattern on the flourescent screen showing spots of light which correspond to individual atoms on the tip surface. The technique was invented by Erwin Müller in 1951.

The idea of FIM really comes from Prof. E.W. Muller. It all began in 1951 when Muller published his FIM paper, describing the invention of FIM and its improved resolution compared to FEM. However, the atomically resolved  images came into existance only in 1955.

This is a modification of the field emission microscope to study the electron emission from selected crystallographic planes. The anode screen on which the field emission pattern is observed is provided with a hole of 2mm diameter with a Faraday cup collector behind it. With magnetic deflection of the pattern one can bring the single crystal planes of interest to coincide with the hole. The electrons thus falling on the collector are necessarily the ones coming from the probed area. Since the tip to screen distance is about 4-5 cm and the magnification is roughly 106, the probed area on the surface will be few nanometers, which is well within the size of most of the crystal planes observed in the field emission pattern

Atom probe tomography (APT) also requires a needle shaped specimen and exploits the effect of a high electric field. When the electric field reaches a critical value, the atoms of the surface of the specimen are ionised and desorpted in a combination called field evaporation. The ions generated are subsequently accelerated away from the specimen surface by the highly divergent elecric field surrounding the specimen, giving also rise to a highly magnified projection of the ions. APT can be considered as being a point projection microscope that enables the observation of single atoms ionised and desorbed from the surface of the specimen via the application of a very intense electric field. Coupled to a time-of-flight mass spectrometer and using a position sensitive detector (PSD), the atom probe becomes a nano-analytical microscope capable of mapping the distribution of the atoms in three dimensions

Early analytical instruments, so called atom probes, were equipped with a single time-of-flight detector to perform a one-dimensional analysis along a specimen cylinder of a few nanometer in diameter. Only some 104 atoms were counted during a typical measurement, so that the statistical significance of the data always was very limited. This situation has recently changed dramatically by the development of two-dimensional detectors, which allow to register a much larger specimen volume and to improve the lateral resolution at the same time. By a reconstruction of the tomographic data, the 3D-distribution of the atoms inside a volume of typically 15 x15x100nm3 is determined in an accuracy that was not achievable before.

Field evaporation is triggered by negative pulses applied to an extraction electrode in front of the specimen to improve the mass resolution. The geometry of the electrode follows a published design [5]. Using a tip to electrode distance of 4mm and an inner electrode diameter of 4 mm, the requirements to the accuracy of tip positioning are only moderate. After aligning the specimens in standardized holders outside the vacuum system, any mechanical adjustment inside the chamber becomes obsolete, which makes measurements very easy.
