Vacuum tube and plasma displays book
The cathode ray tube (CRT) is a luminescent display that has been the leading technology in the display field over more than 100 years. The CRT comes in several types—direct view, monochrome and projection. The color picture projection CRT is a combination of three monochrome CRTs in red, green and blue, respectively. Plasma displays have greatly advanced in the 1990s and are getting a position in the mainstream of the large area flat panel television and display. This chapter summarizes the technical issues to develop the color plasma display panels (PDP), such as realizations of color PDP, long operating life, high luminance, high resolution and full color operation when the research for the surface discharge color PDP was started in 1979. It presents the practical panel structure which is called the three-electrode surface discharge PDP with the stripe structure.
