Field emitters comprised of aligned carbon nanotubes are shown to be promising as a primary electron source in an x-ray tube working in a non ultrahigh vacuum ambience. At a pressure of 2107 Torr, the nanotube emitters continue to emit electrons for more than 1h, and yield better resolved x-ray images than do thermionic emitters, independently of whether the sample is biological or non biological. The near-uniformity in energy distribution of electrons emitted from carbon nanotubes might be related to the improved image quality in the field-emission mode.
