Abstract

A field emission vacuum switch using vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNT) grown by a direct current plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition (DC PECVD) is reported. Cathodes with optimised field emission properties were evaluated in diode configuration as a test vehicle for the construction of a vacuum power three terminal triode.
