A theoretical framework for the electron field emission from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is discussed. Using the tunneling theory, the influence of the detailed electron energy dispersion is proven to be of little importance for the electron field emission. By means of numerical computations in a simplified model, the influence of the environment on the local field on a CNT is discussed for an aligned CNT film. In a simple triangular model for the potential energy barrier at the tube end, a… CONTINUE READING
