May 2009
Objective and PST know-how
Goal:
Demonstrate the feasibility of printed vacuum CNT-devices and assess the potential
integration of a vacuum electronics-based diode in printed electronics technology
Status:
• The emitting current is exponentially dependent on the gap between the cathode and the anode
• Interconnection scheme design to reduce the parasitic capacitance
• Miniaturization down to sub-µm scale to reduce the parasitic capacitive between the cathode
and the anode
• Cathode/anode materials chosen to have high thermal and electrical conductivity
• Growth at low temperature of high purity CNTs needed compatible with the substrate
PST Key Know-how
• To growth uniform and high quality CNTs @ low-temperature by PE/MW CVD on a plethora of
different substrates (from copper to poly-silicon and glass), done in DSI-Singapore
• To growth CNTs in holes patterned with down-to 100nm, in DSI
• 1st
demonstration of Vacuum diode with voltage threshold down to 15V, in DSI/NUS
• Nano-Imprint and moulds to pattern devices at the nanoscale, in PST Italy => allowing Printed
Vacuum Electronics
