Selected area deposition of diamond films on silicon substrates was successfully achieved using the patterned Pt layer as a nucleation inhibitor in the chemical vapor deposition process. The planar diamond film array thus made possesses good electron field emission properties, that is, emission current density of (Je)Si=150 μA/cm2 (under 23.6 V/μm) and turn on field of (Eo)Si=10 V/μm. Precoating a thin Au layer (20 nm) on a Si surface further increased the emission current density to (Je)Au/Si=960 μA/cm2 (under 23.6 V/μm) with (Eo)Au/Si=10 V/μm. The effective work functions (Φ) estimated by Fowler–Nordheim plots of the I–V characteristics are (Φ)Si=0.059 eV and (Φ)Au/Si=0.085 eV. The emission properties of both planar diamond film arrays satisfy the requirement for applying as the electron emitters in the flat panel displays. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
