Abstract

We report the potential field emission of highly conducting metallic perovskite lanthanum nickelate (LaNiO3) from the nanostructured pyramidal and whisker shaped tips as electron emitters. Nano particles of lanthanum nickelate (LNO) were prepared by sol-gel route. Structural and morphological studies have been carried out. Field emission of LNO exhibited high emission current density, J = 3.37 mA/cm(2) at a low threshold electric field, E-th = 16.91 V/mu m, obeying Fowler-Nordheim tunneling. The DC electrical resistivity exhibited upturn at 11.6K indicating localization of electron at low temperature. Magnetoresistance measurement at different temperatures confirmed strong localization in nanostructured LNO obeying Anderson localization effect at low temperature. Published by AIP Publishing.
