Brightness of electron field emitters is defined as the current density per unit solid angle. It is of interest that the measurement of average brightness of a tungsten nanotip field emitter be reported in this paper. It is believed that brightness of electron field emitters of atomic dimensions may exceed that of conventional field emission sources.
