When foils are crumpled they create sharp features that provide a reaction to the applied force. In this paper we consider the possibility of using the sharp features in conducting crumpled foils for use as field emission devices. This would be of interest for self assembled, low cost, large area field emission displays on flexible substrates. In this paper, we identify the geometry of the structures arising in a crumple and model its vertical electric field. Then we investigate some techniques of manufacturing thin film crumples on flexible substrates.
