Abstract:

A carbon nanotube emitter with high uniformity, adhesion and emission current has been formed by screen printing. The raw carbon nanotubes CNTs chunk were crushed, purified, dispersed, mixed with organic additives and then screen-printed on Ag electrode. After burning out the organic additives under two thermal cycles, the surface of CNTs emitters were treated. The treated emitters showed a better emission characteristic than untreated emitters.
