Because of better field emission characteristics, carbon nanotube was a suitable and excellent cathode material for use in the field emission display device. The screen-printing process was adopted in the course of device fabrication for decreasing the manufacturing cost of the pixel array type field emission display. The new simple-structure flat panel display device with carbon nanotube emitters was reported. The design and fabrication process of pixel array cathode structure were also presented. The silver slurry was screen-printed to form the conducting layer, and the insulation slurry was used to form the high quality insulation layer and covering layer, respectively. The whole display device was vacuum-packaged and developed. The fabricated pixel array type field emission display exhibited better field emission performance and adequate brightness.
