Abstract : A thin catalyst film of nickel (0.4 nm thick) on a silicon substrate was reduced in hydrogen at 875 deg C for 30 minutes. Carbon nanotubes were subsequently grown at 950-1000 deg C in less than 5 minutes. A more uniform electron emission was obtained in the vacuum testing station, compared to previous nanotube preparation techniques. Also the Fowler-Nordheim plots were more reproducible.
