Thermionic Emission Microscope (THEM) developed at CEERI has an electrostatic immersion lens to magnify the image. The geometry of lens and potentials are optimized to achieve a magnification of about 15 times with a clear image. The design of deflection plates and lens are carried out using OmniTRAK 3-D to ensure required deflection of beam without losing laminarity and beam interception with plates. Faraday cage, containing a narrow aperture, is designed to obtain elemental currents with low secondary emission. The emission picture of a B-Type cathode has been obtained. The results are satisfactory.
