Synthesis and Field-Emission Property of 3C-SiC Nanowires
3C-SiC nanowires were synthesized via a pyrolysis process by adopting ammonia as dopant source. The morphology and structure characterizations reveal that the as-synthesized individual 3C-SiC nanowire has blende structure with diameter about 200 nm and length of tens microns. The experimental investigation of field emission performances indicated that as-synthesized 3C-SiC nanowires have good field emission properties with the low turn-on field (E to) of about 6.5 V μm–1, the threshold electric field (E thr) of 8.3 V μm–1and the high-field enhancement factor of 2610, respectively. The photoluminescence investigation shows that the peak of the as-synthesized 3C-SiC nanowires has a blue-shift compared to the 3C-SiC bulk materials, which should be due to the quantum confinement effect of nanostructure. This superior FE properties attribute to the sharp tip, N-doping, good crystallinity and the high-aspect ratio of the nanowires, and made it very attractive candidate for application in flat panel display and other nanoelectronic devices.
