The technology in this portfolio relates to a field emission device comprising a cathode having an emission region for electrons. The field emission device is embodied for generating technically useful electron currents at a voltage which is as low as possible, in such a way that the emission region has an arrangement of a plurality of individually positioned or positionable atoms or molecules. As such, this technology could have practical applications in a variety of markets. The field emission device may be usable in a field emission microscope, in a scanning tunneling microscope, in an atomic force microscope, or for ionizing gases. Furthermore, the disclosed field emission device could not only serve in the field of illuminants or backlights, but could also be utilized on circuit boards, in microdevices, and in the field of data carriers. Additional related markets include measuring sensors, hand-held x-ray fluorescence analysis devices, in x-ray devices, and in computer tomography.
