Abstract: The present work describes the field emission characteristics of nanoscale magnetic nanomaterial encapsulated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) fabricated over flexible graphitized carbon cloth. Ni/MWNTs, NiFe/MWNTs and NiFeCo/MWNTs have been synthesized by catalytic chemical vapor decomposition of methane over Mischmetal (Mm)-based AB3 (MmNi3, MmFe 1.5Ni1.5 and MmFeCoNi) alloy hydride catalysts. Metal-encapsulated MWNTs exhibited superior field emission performance than pure MWNT-based field emitters over the same substrate. The results indicate that a Ni-filled MWNT field emitter is a promising material for practical field emission application with a lowest turn-on field of 0.6 V/μm and a high emission current density of 0.3 mA/cm2 at 0.9 V/μm. © 2009 Springer-Verlag.
