               Code for evaluation of the field to thermo-field to thermionic electron emission current

 

   The code realizes the method [1], which employs the Murphy-Good theory, relies on Padé approximants and is computationally
   efficient in the full range of conditions of validity of the theory, from field to thermo-field to thermionic emission regimes.

    Examples of calculation results:



jem: electron emission current density computed by the code,
Tw=300 K. jFN: value given by the Fowler-Nordheim formula.
Vertical line: limit of the region of applicability of the
Fowler-Nordheim theory according to Murphy and Good 1956.




    
 jem: electron emission current density computed by the code.
 jRS: value given by the Richardson-Schottky formula.
