Abstract

A model based on space charge band bending at the back junction is proposed to account for the electron emission at low electric fields from amorphous carbon. In this space charge interlayer model, the real cathode is the substrate from which hot electrons are created due to fully depleted diamond-like carbon the electrons encounter before reaching the front surface of the film. The model is extended to the incorporation of the emission of electrons from polycrystalline diamond thin films.
