Title: Digital electron amplifier with anode readout devices and methods of fabrication

Abstract

Scalable electron amplifier devices and methods of fabricating the devices an atomic layer deposition ("ALD") fabrication process are described. The ALD fabrication process allows for large area (e.g., eight inches by eight inches) electron amplifier devices to be produced at reduced costs compared to current fabrication processes. The ALD fabrication process allows for nanostructure functional coatings, to impart a desired electrical conductivity and electron emissivity onto low cost borosilicate glass micro-capillary arrays to form the electron amplifier devices.
