Low Work Function Tethers (LWT) is long conductors with a segment coated with a material that has loosely-bounded electrons. Unlike a standard bare tether equipped with an active electron emitter, LWTs close the electrical circuit (cathodic contact) with the ambient plasma in a passive manner thanks to the thermionic and photoelectric effects. This work presents experimental results on a novel procedure for manufacturing LWT samples. Conductive substrates (aluminum and copper) have been coated…

Engineering Ultra-Low Work Function of Graphene.

It is demonstrated for the first time that an ultralow work function graphene is achieved by combining electrostatic gating with a Cs/O surface coating, the lowest reported to date for a conductive, nondiamond material.

Work-Function Decrease of Graphene Sheet Using Alkali Metal Carbonates

A chemical approach was applied to decrease the work function of few-layer graphene. Li2CO3, K2CO3, Rb2CO3, and Cs2CO3 were used as n-doping materials. The sheet resistance of graphene doped with

Tuning the work function of graphene toward application as anode and cathode

Work-Function Engineering of Graphene Electrodes by Self-Assembled Monolayers for High-Performance Organic Field-Effect Transistors.

We have devised a method to optimize the performance of organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) by controlling the work functions of graphene electrodes by functionalizing the surface of SiO2

Solution-processable graphene oxide as an efficient hole transport layer in polymer solar cells.

The results indicate that GO could be a simple solution-processable alternative to PEDOT:PSS as the effective hole transport and electron blocking layer in OPV and light-emitting diode devices.

Viable thermionic emission from graphene-covered metals

Thermionic emission from monolayer graphene grown on representative transition metals, Ir and Ru, is characterized by low-energy electron microscopy (LEEM). Work functions were determined from the

Solution-processed transparent blue organic light-emitting diodes with graphene as the top cathode

The work function and sheet resistance of graphene are modified by an aqueous process which can also transfer graphene on organic devices as the top electrodes, and all-solution processed transparent OLEDs can be fabricated without any vacuum process.
