We demonstrate edge electron emission from flexible free-standing graphene paper (GP). The turn-on field is measured at 2.2 V/μm, and the maximum emission current density at 3 A/cm2. The field emission properties of GP can be optimized by adjusting the thickness and annealing temperature. Because it is flexible, it can be shaped into different forms to meet the requirements of specific applications. The electron beam shape can range from a sheet electron beam to a cylindrical (hollow) electron beam.
