Paper Title:
Preparation and Field Emission Properties of Ag-CNTs by Electroless Plating
  Abstract

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) demonstrate attractive characteristics as cold cathode emitters for high aspect ratio, small radius of curvature, high mechanical strength and chemical stability. In this article, Ag-CNTs were prepared by a series of processes including acid-treating, sensitizing, activating and electroless plating. Then Ag-CNTs cathode were sucessfully fabricated by electrophoresis deposition (EPD) method. The morphologies of Ag-CNTs cathode and pristine CNTs cathode were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed that the field emission properties of Ag-CNTs cathode were better than pristine CNTs cathode, for presenting lower turn-on field, larger emission current density, more stabilization and longer lifetime. Thus it can be seen that the Ag-CNTs cathode can improve the characteristics of carbon nanotubes field emission display (CNT-FED).
