We demonstrate for the first time a large-scale ac plasma display panel enhanced by localized surface plasmon (LSP) resonance owing to Ag nanoparticles. In order to generate plasmon resonance fitted to the blue-emitting phosphor, we deposited Ag nanoparticles on the phosphor layer by a spray method using large-scale fabrication technology. Localized surface plasmon resonance by Ag nanoparticles was strongly induced at the blue-emission regime. The measurement of the optical and electrical properties revealed that the enhanced emission from the phosphor was reflected in luminous efficacy enhanced by an average of 17.8in manufactured test display panels. The improved luminous efficiency originated from the resonant coupling between the LSPs of the Ag nanoparticles and the electric-dipole transition of europium ions responsible for blue emission
