The fabrication of high current density nanofilament cathodes for microwave amplifiers was discussed. Metallic nanowires grown on silicon wafers and carbon nanotubes/nanofibers grown by catalytic plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) were the two types of nanofilament arrays analyzed as cathodes materials. It was observed that the arrays of 5.8 μm height and 50 nm diameter carbon nanotubes exhibited geometrical enhancement factor of 240+-7.5%. The results show that carbon nanotubes/nanofibers arrays are best suited for nanofilament cathodes.
