Field Emission Characteristics of FED with Carbon Nanotube Field Emitters Using Improved Cathode Electrode


Article Preview

Silver slurry was used as conducting material, and the improved silver cathode electrode was fabricated. The CNT paste formed as field emitters was screen-printed on the surface of silver cathode electrode. The diode FED panel with CNT field emitters was sealed, and the fabrication of cathode substrate and anode substrate was described. The screen-printing technology and the sintering process were employed in the course of device fabrication for the silver cathode electrode. The field emission current was measured and the emission image was presented. The packaged FED showed good field emission characteristics and better field emission uniformity, which the manufacture process was also low-cost, feasible and simple.
