Self-organized ZnO nanostructures were grown by thermal decomposition of metalorganic precursors as well as by carbothermal reduction process. Nanostructured undoped and gallium-doped ZnO nanostructured films were deposited by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition from metalorganic compounds. Electron field emission follows Fowler-Nordheim equation. Efficient electron emission was obtained from self-organized nanorstructures due to their geometric shape. Enhanced field emission from ZnO:Ga nanorstructured films in comparison with undoped ZnO films is obliged to lowering work function at doping by gallium.
