Microfabrication of Si Column Covered with SiC Film for Electron Emitter


Article Preview

The selective growth of Si column was carried out by depositing Au on patterned Si (111) substrate as a solvent in chemical vapor transport method by using halides (HCl). The Si column was produced by VLS mechanism. The column was covered with SiC by conventional CVD process using HMDS ( Hexamethyldisilane ). Carbon Nano Tube ( CNT ) was deposited on Si column covered with SiC by DC assisted µ-wave plasma CVD.
