Suppression of the hysteretic electron emission in one-dimensional nanomaterial-based electron sources remains a critical barrier preventing their wide scale adoption in various vacuum electronics applications. Here, we report on the suppressed hysteretic performance, and its photo-dependence from conformal poly-vinylpyrrolidone encapsulated percolative Ag nanowire-based electron sources.
