Paper Abstract

A new type of nanoscale field emitter array, consisting of carbon nanonecklaces and nanotentacles, has been produced by a novel multi-level self assembly process employing flexible porous alumina films. The field emission characteristics of the carbon nanostructures were measured using a scanning field emission microscope (SAFEM) and they exhibited strong Fowler-Nordheim emission. This new synthetic approach could find potential applications in flexible and inexpensive arrays of nanoscale cold cathode emitters.
