The crystallographic orientations of sputtered Cr films as a function of substrate temperature T s were characterized by SEM, XRD, and estimation of etched features. It was found that the tapering angle θ t of thin Cr films after reactive ion etching depends on the deposition conditions. In the case of nontapered-gated FEAs, emission properties were enhanced.
