Title: Optical Emission Spectra of Plasma Display Panel

Abstract

In this study, optical emission spectra of plasma display panel (PDP) was investigated between 200-850 nm at various pressure, pure (Ar) an mixture gas (0,5Ar+0,5 N2). This device is an application of dielectric barrier discharge.

  • The time profile of 147-nm light emission from a cell discharge of the plasma display panel is investigated in terms of the xenon mole fraction {chi} and the gas pressure p, including the important influences of the diffusion loss of the plasma and the three-body collisions of excited xenon atoms in the resonance state. The light emission profile dY/dt in time is analytically expressed in terms of the gas pressure and xenon mole fraction. The theoretical analysis indicates that the emission intensity increases from zero, reaches its peak, and then decreases, as time goes by. The peak emission intensity (dY/dt){submore » p} and the corresponding emission time t{sub p} are obtained analytically in terms of the gas pressure p and xenon mole fraction {chi}. The total emission Y of 147-nm light during each discharge in the cells is proportional to the plasma decay time {tau}. The experimental data are remarkably consistent with the theoretical predictions.« less
  • Emission properties of the 173 nm lights from the electrical discharge cells of the plasma display panel are investigated. The dimer formation and a theoretical model of 173 nm emission are presented. It is shown that the diffusion loss of the excited xenon atoms in the metastable level is one of the most important population depreciation factor of excited xenon atoms. The decay time {tau}{sub d} of excited atom number increases from zero, reaches its peak, and then decreases to zero, as the gas pressure p increases from zero, agreeing well with experimental data. A simple analytical expression Y ofmore » the total emission intensity is described in terms of the diffusion loss d{sub f}, the three-body collision {eta}, the gas pressure p, and the xenon mole fraction {chi}. The emission intensity Y of 173 nm photon decreases with an increasing value of parameter d{sub f}. Moreover, the emission intensity Y increases drastically with an increasing value of the gas pressure p and the xenon mole fraction {chi}. Results from the theoretical model agree remarkably well with experimental data.« less
  • The mechanism to realize high luminous efficacy in a plasma display panel fabricated with a cathode material possessing a high secondary electron emission coefficient ({gamma}) for Ne and Xe ions was studied via three-dimensional numerical simulation. When a high {gamma} cathode material is used, the increased electron heating efficacy is responsible for increasing vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) efficacy with 10% Xe content gas. However, the continued availability of sufficient secondary electrons during the dynamic moving phase of the cathode sheath in which the electric field remains weakened causes increasing VUV efficacy with 30% Xe content gas. It was found that themore » improvement of the luminous efficacy of the plasma display panel with a high {gamma} cathode material is maximized under the condition of high Xe content gas because of the simultaneous increase of the electron heating efficacy and Xe excitation efficacy.« less

  • A time dependent, two-dimensional mode for simulating the plasma evolution in an AC plasma display panel (AC-PDP) is described. Reaction-convection (mobility)-diffusion equations for charged particles and excited heavy neutral species are solved along with Poisson`s equation, a radiation transport equation, a surface charge buildup equation, and an external L-R-C circuit equation using a fully implicit numerical method. Electron-driven rate coefficients are computed with a 0-D Boltzmann solver in the local field approximation. For studying the particle dynamics in pure helium, they consider a reduced model in which radiation transport is ignored and the excited species manifold is collapsed to compositemore » metastable and excited states. The model predictions of breakdown voltage are quite sensitive to the value of the secondary electron emission coefficient assumed and the uncertainties in the electron-driven reaction rates. An initial comparison between the model predictions and I-V measurements from a specially constructed helium-filled panel is made with qualitatively similar behavior. The lack of quantitative agreement can be explained by a combination of uncertainties in the model input data and uncertainty in the initial surface charge state in the experiments.« less
