Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss three 1D heat transfer problems associated with both conduction and radiation, which are mathematical models for a CNT used as a field electron emitter. CNT has attracted an increasing attention as a potentially excellent material for an electron emitter since around mid-90's. Predicting the current density and the temperature profile of CNT caused by the Joule heating associated with the current density is the key to understanding the physics of CNT as a field electron emitter. Thus, this is the focus of the paper.
