Study on Nano-Diamond Cathode Field Emission and Characteristics of Luminescence by Electrophoresis
Cathode samples of titanium-based nanodiamond field emission were prepared by electrophoresis dispersed solutions in different formulas. Observe the surface and structure of the coating by using metaloscope, microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD); Test the field emission characteristic after annealing; Analyze the relation between the samples’ light photos and the uniformity of coating; Discuss the mechanism of the improved field emission characteristic after annealing. Under the same conditions the surface uniformity of diamond coating prepared by isobutyl alcohol is best,it is the minimum threshold electric field emission, 5.5 V/μm, the current density can reach to 85μA/cm2 at the field of 15V/μm. Field emission characteristic and luminescence could be best after annealing.
