A theory of photostimulated field emission (PFE) is presented which is analogous to that of the surface effect in photoemission. We generalize and extend previous calculations of Bagchi and Taranko. Results are compared with data of Lee and Reifenberger. The theory does not yield the observed oscillatory dependence of the current as a function of applied field.
