Abstract

Field emission properties of boron nitride (BN) nanomaterials have been studied for years to apply it at harsh ambient condition. However, the field emitters fabricated using the BN nanomaterials have limitations to utilize it as field emission devices due to their poor emission performances. Here, we report much enhanced field emission properties of the BN nanomaterial with low turn-on electric field, high emission current density, and long term emission stability.
