Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have emerged as promising electron emitters in recent years because of their low threshold electric field for emission and a high emission current density. These features make them attractive for many technological applications such as cold cathode electron sources for a variety of vacuum electronic devices. In this paper, we model the behavior of randomly oriented CNTs during field emission under the influence of external electric field.
