Abstract : This device uses an oxide-metal matrix material to enable the integration of either constant or pulsed image readout without the use of electron scanning. It takes advantage of a new material's ability to serve as both a field effect emitter and a matrix channel for the emitted electrons to enable improved resolution. (Author)
