Abstract
Nanocarbon materials are of great interest as field emission cathodes due to their low threshold voltage. In this work current-voltage characteristics of nanocarbon electrodes were studied. Low-threshold emission was found in planar samples where field enhancement is negligible (<10). Electron work function values, calculated by Fowler-Nordheim theory, are anomalous low (<1 eV) and come into collision with directly measured work function values in fabricated planar samples (4.1-4.4 eV). Non-applicability of Fowler-Nordheim theory for the nanocarbon materials was confirmed. The reasons of low-threshold emission in nanocarbon materials are discussed.
