Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Microcrystalline and nanocrystalline diamond coatings grown by microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques are examined for their properties for applications as cold cathodes. Low-field electron field emission and high-yield secondary electron emission are promising properties of diamond and for applications to power modulators.
