Based on experimental results of a conventional gridded triode with a planar carbon nanotube (CNT) cold-cathode, a square column array field emission cathode topology is proposed to improve the beam transparency and cathode surface electric field distribution. Optimized parameters of a gridded diode are obtained by investigating the electric field at surface of CNT array cathode. Compared with a planar anode diode the electric field at the cathode surface is almost uniformity and increased some 50%. Furthermore, a gridded X-ray electron gun based on the mentioned CNT cathode substrate has been geometrically optimized by particle in cell (PIC) software. Simulation results show that a 40 kV/4.03 mA electron beam can be achieved with a beam transparency of 99% and the radius of beam spot is 0.1 mm.
