Field Emission Display

The sensitive field emission and thermionic enhancement of amorphous diamond would make it an ideal coating material for Spindt (metal spikes) array that may be used for front panel displays. Such field emission displays will have the lowest operational power and panel temperature (Fig. 9.6).

By coating amorphous diamond on arrays of Spindt cones that are controlled by the cross bars of electrodes, the emission of a particular addressed pixel can be triggered to excite phosphor of RBG colors (Fig. 9.7). Such a device can be used as field emission display for TV and other devices.
