Abstract

In field emission patterns of multi-walled carbon nanotubes, we have observed interference fringes of electrons emitted through different sites. Main features of the emission patterns are reproduced from Young's interference formula of optics. We point out reasons to observe clear Young's interference fringes in the electron emission patterns.
