This paper investigates the introduction of nano-sized Ag cluster into a SiO2 matrix by Ag+ implantation on thermally oxidised SiO2 layers. The embedded Ag nanoclusters create conducting paths for the emissive electrons from substrate to emission surface and give rise to a local electric field enhancement due to an electrical inhomogeneity effect.
