The junctions are constructed by evaporating gold particles onto an oxidized aluminum film. Up to 3.7 volts are applied to a junction causing electrons to tunnel from the aluminum film through the insulating oxide barrier into the small gold particles. Emitted light has strong polarized and weak unpolarized components. The angular distribution and intensity versus photon energy of the polarized component are in agreement with recent theoretical $calculations^{1}$ based on the excitation and radiative decay of surface plasmons in a small metal particle located above a metal film. en_US dc.format.extent 74952 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title LIGHT EMITTING GOLD PARTICLE ELECTRON TUNNELING JUNCTIONS en_US dc.type article en_US
