With screen-printing method, the diode field emission display panel was fabricated. On the cathode back plane, the cross-like cathode electrode structure was developed for improving the field emission properties of field emission display panel. The prepared carbon nanotubes were utilized to form the electron emission sources, and the necessary cathode potential for the carbon nanotube cathode could be conducted by the indium tin oxide stripe. Seen from the fabrication pattern, the divided indium tin oxide stripe was cross-like, but the fabrication surface for the single carbon nanotube cathode pixel was circular. The whole field emission display panel possessed good field emission characteristics.
