Definitions

Electronics

  • An instrument which utilizes field emissions from the sharply rounded point of a solid, usually a metal. The emitted electrons are then directed towards a fluorescent or phosphorescent screen, forming an image of the surface of the object. Magnifications of greater than 1 million times are achievable in this manner. Its abbreviation is FEM.
