However, its electron emission properties are yet to be fully understood. Recently, we started to investigate femtosecond-laser-induced strong-field photoemission from nanocrystalline diamond field emitters with very sharp (~10 nm apex) tips. Initial results show that the mechanism of electron emission at ~10¹⁰ W/cm² light intensities in the near UV to near IR range is more complex than in metals. We present our latest experimental results obtained at Stanford University, while LANL’s strong-field photoemission test stand is being commissioned. We show that strong-field photoemission occurs not only at the nano-tip’s apex, but also on flat diamond surfaces (e.g., pyramid sides), that is why extra care needs to be taken to differentiate between emission spots on the chip. Qualitatively, we discuss the models that explain the observed dependences of electron emission on the optical power, polarization of the light, etc. PB - JACoW Publishing CP - Geneva, Switzerland SP - 228 EP - 231 KW - laser KW - electron KW - FEM KW - photon KW - polarization DA - 2019/10 PY - 2019 SN - 2673-7000 SN - 978-3-95450-223-3 DO - doi:10.18429/JACoW-NAPAC2019-MOPLH25 UR - http://jacow.org/napac2019/papers/moplh25.pdf ER -
