WHAT DOES SCHOTTKY EFFECT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Schottky effect

The Schottky effect is a phenomenon found in physics. In electron emission devices, especially electron guns, the thermionic electron emitter will be biased negative relative to its surroundings. This creates an electric field of magnitude F at the emitter surface. Without the field, the surface barrier seen by an escaping Fermi-level electron has height W equal to the local work-function. The electric field lowers the surface barrier by an amount ΔW, and increases the emission current. This is known as the Schottky effect or field enhanced thermionic emission. It can be modeled by a simple modification of the Richardson equation, by replacing W by. This gives the equation where ε0 is the electric constant. Electron emission that takes place in the field-and-temperature-regime where this modified equation applies is often called Schottky emission. This equation is relatively accurate for electric field strengths lower than about 108 V m−1. For electric field strengths higher than 108 V m−1, so-called Fowler-Nordheim tunneling begins to contribute significant emission current.

Definition of Schottky effect in the English dictionary

The definition of Schottky effect in the dictionary is a reduction in the energy required to remove an electron from a solid surface in a vacuum when an electric field is applied to the surface.
