AbstractWe report a series of experiments characterizing the emission obtained from near-amorphous carbon deposited by excimer laser ablation. We found that vacuum arc discharge and material transfer are responsible for morphology modifications that greatly enhance emission. When the morphology of the materials are well controlled, we find that our carbon has a work function one half that of silicon.
