ABSTRACT The mechanism of high luminous efficiency discharges with high Xe content in an AC plasma display panel was analyzed by computer simulation using a two-dimensional fluid model. The model has reproduced well the experimental results. The high luminous efficiency with high Xe content is attributed to high electron heating efficiency as well as high excitation efficiency by electron. The electron heating efficiency is increased with increasing the sustaining voltage under high Xe content and this phenomenon was analyzed by investigating the cathode sheath and secondary electron emission characteristics.
