Selective decoration of Rh nanospheres on acid functionalized carbon nanotubes has been demonstrated using Al as a sacrificial substrate. Remarkable field emission has been observed for this heterostructure as a high current density of 170 muA / cm2 is generated at an ultra-low threshold of 300 V/ mu m, compared to much smaller values for Rh nanospheres and carbon nanotubes separately.
