An emitter was any device that emitted or gave off something. Usually, what was given off was energy or streams of particles.

Starfleet-issued emergency transporter armbands contained a type 7 discriminator that had a re-configurable emitter. (TNG: "Timescape")

In the final draft script of ENT: "Stigma", the word "emitter", in reference to a neutron microscope, wasn't written at a point when it is said in the final edit of the episode. The script instead stated "TECH", indicating that word was to be replaced later. [1]
