Development of a multiscale model for the field electron emission properties of carbon-nanotube-based carbon fibers

Abstract

A multiscale array model has recently been presented to describe field electron emission (FE) from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) on the apex of a carbon nanofiber (CNF) fabricated as a CNT aggregate. The model considered Joule heating, radiative cooling and Henderson/Nottingham cooling/heating, assumed CNT destruction at a specified tip temperature, and predicted… (More)
