Paper Abstract

A fully sealed field emission display (FED), indicator, using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as emitters is examined. The CNTs chunk, synthesized by arc discharge, were crushed, mixed with conductive pastes and then screen-printed on glass for the cold cathode. And the anode plate, an ITO glass printed P15 phosphor, was separated from cathode using 90 micrometers spacers. The indicator display performed a turn-on voltage as low as 250 V, and the emission current density 2.2 mA/cm2 under 300 V with brightness of 500 nits. The pixels, driven by open drain IC with 5 V gate voltage, showed the clock image which indicated the application of CNTs-FED. No significant degradation of this performance was observed during 1000 mins testing. The influence of printing condition and surface treatment process on the emission characteristics will also be discussed in this letter.
