Research Collaboration for Controlled Fabrication of Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Arrays at the Center for Advanced Photonics and Electronics at Cambridge University
A three month intensive collaborative effort has been conducted by research teams from Portland State University and the University of Cambridge. During this time, preliminary measurements and analyses have been carried out for a series of longterm research projects. These include two investigations of metal gated carbon nanotube field emitter arrays: a characterization and exploration of the reduction of nearest-neighbor shielding effects of emitters using an externally applied gate potential, and the fabrication of emitter arrays with an integrated gate layer. Additional efforts have been put forth to analyze methods to improve carbon nanotube field effect transistors, particularly the improvement of contacts between metal electrodes and semiconducting nanotubes.
from the University of Arizona, and is currently a professor of physics and electrical
and computer engineering. She is also the director of the Center for Electron
Microscopy and Nanofabrication at Portland State University (PSU). Her current
research is focused on the development of nanofabrication techniques for the
property-controlled growth of nanotubes and nanowires, and the investigation of
carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanowires as building blocks for
nanoelectronics devices and as the new generation of electron field emitters. The
results of her nanomaterials research are documented in more than 90 publications in
refereed journals as well as in an awarded and two pending patents. On June 13,
2005, she was honored by United States President George W. Bush in the White
House with the 2004 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers--
the nation's highest honor for professionals at the outset of their research careers

Micah Eastman received a BS in Physics from Oregon State University in 2006. He
is currently a graduate student in the Physics Department, Portland State University
conducting research under Dr. Jun JiaoÃ¢â�¬â�¢s direction. His graduate research is focused
on the development of novel fabrication procedures for nanodevices. He has
travelled to the University of Cambridge between June to September 2007 to conduct
research at Center for Advanced Phtonics and Microelectronics.
