Field emission of electrons from fine palladium particles bound with insulating material was demonstrated. The threshold voltage for electron emission was drastically decreased as the result of an aging phenomenon. This aging was caused by material modification and/or cleaning of the palladium particles induced by local heating. After aging, electron emission stabilized and current fluctuations as low as 10% were obtained.
