Paper Abstract

Plasma display technology was investigated to determine its suitability for scene projection, particularly in the ultraviolet portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. This technology, in several guises, was found to hold considerable promise for projecting very high radiance, broadband or narrowband scenes across the spectrum, from the ultraviolet to the infrared. Performance metrics such as temporal response and dynamic range were also found to be promising for this technology. High manufacturing yields at relatively low display cost (e.g. cost/pixel) are expected due to the simplicity of the devices, the ability to leverage modern microelectronics-based deposition, pattern and etching techniques as well as the commercial plasma display community that continues to improve performance and drive manufacturing costs down.
