We have found out that carbon nanocoils have a highly potential ability for an electron emission device. Carbon nanocoils were prepared in high yield by catalytic thermal chemical vapor deposition. The source gas and catalyst are acetylene and iron-coated indium tin oxide, respectively. The measurement of the field emission current from the nanocoils at a pressure of 1 × 10−6 Torr shows the turn-on voltage as low as 180 V at the electrode gap of 130 μm and the saturation current density more than 10 mA/cm2, which is similar to or smaller than those of most carbon nanotube emitters. The fluorescence is more uniform compared with that of the nanotube emitters. The fluorescence experiment also indicates that the body as well as the tip of a coil work as an effective emission site. A lifetime test for 100 hours under the current density of 1 mA/cm2 shows no large fluctuation. These results indicate that the nanocoils have a spatially uniform emission of electrons and a long stability.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
