Paper Abstract

It becomes harder and harder to judge a paper by its title. This paper is about Displays. But what does that really define? Not very much, I'm afraid - because Displays mean different things to different people. Right now for example, because of the wide spread interest in elec-tronic watches and hand-held calcula-tors, Displays often conjures up visions of Liquid Crystals and LED's (Light Emitting Diodes). On the other hand, a recent book entitled "Data Display Systems", by W. Gray Horton, turned out to be about various wall charts. Several years ago, a Display paper may have been discussing NIXIE tubes, or projection digit displays, or el?ctroluminescent panel displays, or light valves, or SOLARI "flapper" displays. However, many times when Displays are mentioned, one is really thinking about cathode ray tube systems, and that's what this paper is about.
