Paper Abstract

Field emission characteristics of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were investigated in this paper. CNTs were produced by the catalytic decomposition of hydrocarbons--propylene on the nickel films. The SEM images showed that CNTs were quite uniform and disordered; the average diameter is about 50 nm. The measurements were performed in a vacuum chamber at the pressure of 10-7 torr. The results showed the typical voltage-current characteristics, which qualitatively followed the conventional Fowler-Nordheim equation. In conclusion, CNTs appear to be an excellent field emission cathode material with stable and reproducible field emission characteristics and a lower onset field.
