Abstract

Mechanism of electron transport through planerized nanocrystalline-Si (nc-Si) cold cathode surface emitting devices was investigated. The energy distribution of electrons emitted from nc-Si emitter was obviously not Maxwellian, which was usually obtained at conventional cold cathode devices, but was similar to that from the nanocrystalline porous silicon diode emitter. These results strongly suggest that electrons are emitted quasiballistically from our devices and indicate that the planarized nc-Si layer play an important role in this high efficiency cold cathode emitter.
