Through this research, we developed multi-color flat discharge panels by using negative glow (barrier) discharge which was based on the principle of the color controlled dischage, and also developed turn on circuits for them.
(1) Flat discharge panel with ITO and Al foil outer electrodes and Xe gas 8 or 15.7 Torr enclosed
We painted red and blue fluorescent materials on inner walls of the opposite glass plate of the flat panel, and we got 450nt in maximum brightness and (0.16,0.13) - (0.64,0.35) in CIE-xy chromaticity by using booster transformer circuits. In this case, the discharge voltage was high according to the thickness of the glass wall.
(2) Flat discharge panel with ITO and Al foil outer electrodes and Ne/Xe mixed gas 747 Torr enclosed
Warm-white and blue fluorescent materials were used. We got (0.14,0.06) and 1000nt- (0.45,0.41) and 5200nt by using full-bridge switching circuit in addition to transformer circuit. The maximum value of brightness was about 8000nt at the center of a panel, and the mean value was about 4000nt. But, in this case, the discharge voltage was over lkV,and the destribution of brightness was not uniform.
(3) Flat discharge panel with ITO and metalized inner electrodes (dielectric coating)
On the Hg/Xe enclosed panel, because of unevenness of ITO transparent electrodes, we were not able to turn on color controlled discharge. The Ne/Xe enclosed panel was broken by radiant heat of negative glow. But inner electrodes method was very effective to lower the discharge voltage.
Turn on circuit
It was effective to increase the brightness that we increased a peek current by using full-bridge rectangular switching.
