Abstract
IN THIS PHASE I PROGRAM, ULTRAMET PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEPOSITING THE BORON-BORON NITRIDE COUPLE, PRODUCED BY MICROWAVE PLASMA-ENHANCED CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD). IT WILL DEMONSTRATE THAT AN ULTRASTRUCTURE COMPOSED OF ALTERNATING NANOMETER-THICK LAYERS OF BORON, A GOOD ELECTRICAL CONDUCTOR AT HIGH TEMPERATURES, AND BORON NITRIDE, A GOOD INSULATOR AND DIELECTRIC AT ANY TEMPERATURE, CAN BE OBTAINED. THESE ULTRASTRUCTURES SHOULD BE SUITABLE FOR THE DESIGN OF ADVANCED COLD CATHODES BY PROVIDING GEOMETRIC ENHANCEMENT OF THE NEAR SURFACE ELECTRIC FIELDS.
