Abstract : Objectives: (a) To understand the relative advantages and properties of diamond and graphite nanotubes as emission sources for FED displays. (b) To develop methods of growing uniform deposits of graphite (fullerene) nanotubes of nanometer scale diameters. It is believed that these field emitters will have the following properties: (1) Low turn-on voltages (2) Insensitivity to the vacuum ambient (3) Inexpensive methods of preparation (4) A compatibility with other industrial efforts - e.g. that of S.I. Diamond Corp. (c) To develop focused electron beam and focused ion beam (FIB) techniques for repairing flat panel display panels, especially those utilizing active matrix technology involving relatively small line widths.
