Paper Abstract

This paper presents an update on the progress to commercialize a new unique replacement for the powder phosphor currently used in projection cathode ray tubes (CRTs). The new technology designated Resonant Microcavity Phosphor (RMP) is now being put into CRTs similar to those currently used in commercial rear projection televisions. This new technology allows resolution, brightness and dynamic range well beyond what is possible with powder phosphor. It is intended that this paper give engineers a basic understanding of the characteristics and advantages of the RMP technology. Some of the key reasons for developing a new phosphor for the projection CRT are presented. Current and future RMP-CRT performance and some other applications for RMP technology are also reviewed.
