Over the past few years, there has been an increasing interest in using carbonaceous films as the cold electron emitting cathodes in field emission displays (FED) and other field emission devices such as sensors and detectors. Major advantage of using carbonaceous films (e.g. diamond-like, nano-cluster carbon and propose by us carbonaceous films containing metallic nanocrystals) as cold cathodes are: wide temperature operating range; reliable sensing performance; simplicity in fabrication process; flexibility in the choice of substrate; compatibility with silicon microfabrication process and cost efficiency. The use of a catalyst such as Ni enhances the sensor performance (e.g. stability, selectivity and sensivity over a wide range of temperature).
