Novel Method to Develop Graphenated-Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced FEE Properties

Novel Method to Develop Graphenated-Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes with Enhanced FEE Properties

Enhancing the electron emission of multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) is key for applications ranging from cold cathodes used in high-resolution electron microscopes to portable X-ray imaging systems. In a paper recently published in Nanotechnology, a team led by Professor My Ali El Khakani, from the Energie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre of INRS (INRS-EMT), has reported an original approach for the development of novel graphenated-MWCNTs with enhanced field electron emission (FEE) properties.
