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.

    ABSTRACT: One of the most important issues in AC PDP is luminance and luminous efficacy. To improve the luminance and luminous efficacy, new sustain electrode structure which contains long discharge gap is necessary. However, it causes a rise of firing voltage. In this experiment, a new structure is proposed in order to solve this problem. To drop the firing voltage, the hump shaped electrode is inserted into the forward area of the main discharge gap. The experimental results show that proposed structures with 160um discharge gap have high firing voltage by 38V, high luminance by 30% and high luminous efficacy by 15% compared with conventional type having 60um discharge gap. In addition, the proposed structure with hump electrode shows lower firing voltage by 24V compared with the test panel with 160um discharge gap which doesn't have hump electrode though they have similar luminous efficacy.

    ABSTRACT: In a surface type ac PDP having gap between the surface electrodes, the luminous efficacy has a reciprocal dependence on the sustaining frequency. The discharge current flowing to the address electrodes are measured to investigate the phenomena and spectral intensity from visible light to infra red is measured to verify phosphor saturation with the frequency. Experiments show the discharge between the address and surface electrodes deteriorates the efficacy in high sustaining frequencies. Pulse width modulation is introduced to improve the efficacy. In optimum conditions, we obtained 1.99lm/w and 1.79lm/w at 200kHz and 250kHz, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, we attempted to reduce firing voltage of AC-PDP by alloying MgO protective Layer with CaO. Also, spray coating of single crystal MgO powder has been used to improving Exo-electron emission characteristics and reducing the statistical discharge delay in plasma displays. The properties of discharge depending upon the single crystal MgO powder are investigated. Plasma display having powder coated MgCaO Protective Layer shows lower driving voltage and higher efficacy than of uncoated, conventional panel.
