Efficient high-current field emission from arrays of CNT columns


At present carbon nanotubes (CNT) are the most prospective cathode material for triode applications because of their strong field emission (FE) at low electric fields. The FE homogeneity of flat CNT cathodes, however, is still limited by their rather fast and uncontrolled growth which usually leads to strongly varying field enhancement and current carrying… (More)
