Device and method for achieving enhanced field emission utilizing nanostructures grown on a conductive substrate
A device and method is presented for achieving a high field emission from the application of a low electric field. More specifically, the device includes a substrate wherein a plurality of nanostructures are grown on the substrate. The relationship of the nanostructures and the substrate (the relationship includes the number of nanostructures on the substrate, the orientation of the nanostructures in relationship to each other and in relationship to the substrate, the geometry of the substrate, the morphology of the nanostructures and the morphology of the substrate, the manner in which nanostructures are grown on the substrate, the composition of nanostructure and composition of substrate, etc) allow for the generation of the high field emission from the application of the low electric field.
