Abstract
This study uses helium and xenon gas mixture discharges to determine the effects of helium plasma emission on the characteristics of the visible emission from the stimulation of the red, green, and blue (RGB) phosphor layers in a surface-type alternate current plasma display panel. With a mixture of less than 2% xenon to helium, it was found that the luminance of the RGB phosphor layers decreases with a decrease in the helium plasma emission intensity. However, with a mixture of above 2% xenon to helium, the luminance of the RGB phosphor layers increases regardless of a decrease in the helium plasma emission intensity. Furthermore, the color purity of the RGB phosphor layers improves as the helium plasma emission intensity decreases. Accordingly, it can be concluded that the optical properties of the phosphor layers, including color purity and luminance, depend on the helium plasma discharge emission as well as the visible emission from the stimulation of the phosphor layers.
