Abstract:

The objective of this program was to determine the effects of radiation on MEMS vacuum microelectronic devices with integrated carbon nanotube field emitters. We do observe some small effects of radiation on the field emission properties of CNTs and integrated MEMS vacuum microelectronic devices. However, the residual gas in the vacuum chamber adsorbing and desorbing from the surface of the CNTs has a much larger effect on field emission and device performance than the radiation.
