Atmospheric pressure field emission operation of 2 mum gap diode utilizing crystalline W18O49 nanowires, which were grown on sputter deposited tungsten films by thermal annealing at 700degC in ethene and nitrogen, was demonstrated. Field emission measurements in air follows Fowler-Nordheim electron tunneling theory and showed a low turn-on field of 3.3 V… CONTINUE READING
