Abstract

We report highly efficient photoelectron emission from gold nanotapers via long-range plasmonic nanofocusing. This new source of remotely-generated few-femtosecond electron pulses is implemented in a point-projection-microscope and first steps towards ultrafast electron microscopy are discussed.
