Stable field emission from nanoporous silicon carbide


We report on a new type of cold cathode field emission electron source capable of extremely high emission, producing current densities at levels comparable to thermal sources. Record stable emission in excess of 6 A/cm2 at 7.5 V/μm and a maximum current density of 11 A/cm2 at 9.0 V/μm are demonstrated. The emitter is a unique structure… (More)
