An experimental method has been developed for measuring the emission parameters of diamond-like materials using a scanning tunneling microscope modified for both tunneling and emission regimes. With this technique, nanodiamond films with emission site densities as high as 106 cm-2 were investigated. The emission sites were found to be located on the grain slopes or in the areas between grains and consist of multiple smaller emission points. © 2000 American Vacuum Society.
