(a) Typical field emission curves of CuO nanowire arrays with or without laser irradiation. Inset shows the time response of current density under fixed electric field subject to on and off the laser irradiation with power density of . (b) Time response of current under laser irradiation with different power densities. (c) Time response of current under laser irradiation under different electric fields.
(a) Field emission enhancement under the irradiation of laser with wavelengths of 1550, 808, and . (b) Emission current enhancement vs applied field for different laser wavelengths.
(a) Comparison of effect of lasers with the same power density but different wavelengths. (b) Magnified decay edge marked in (a). Decay time factors of 2.7 and can be obtained by fitting the first data for 1064 and laser irradiations. Inset of (b) shows the semilog plot after subtracting the background.
