Using heavily Si-doped AlN, a triode-type field emission display is demonstrated. The device consists of the heavily Si-doped AlN field emitter, mesh grid, and phosphor-coated anode screen. The device exhibits a low turn-on electric field of 11 V/μm, and the field emission current exponentially increases as the grid voltage increases. The field emission current reaches 9.5 μA at an electric field strength of 23 V/μm. Luminescence from the phosphor excited by the field-emitted electrons is uniform over the anode screen and is intense enough for the display application. The field emission current is stable over time. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
