Paper Abstract

A computer code which simulates the operation of a monochrome or color plasma display picture element is being jointly developed by a university, industrial partner, and a national laboratory under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement. The goals of the project, a description of a generic picture element and the plasma model are described. The role played by the wall in determining boundary values is presented. A brief discussion of the computer codes under development is given. The first year of progress by the University of Toledo group is summarized. Simulations of the voltage, electrode surface charge and current flow as a function of time for write, erase and sustain pulses for a pure helium discharge have been run.
