    Beam lead GaP electroluminescent diodes have been developed using a quasi-planar configuration. This new structure couples the advantages of beam lead technology to the high-efficiency GaP p-n junctions prepared by liquid phase epitaxial (LPE) growth. The devices consist of a p-type (Zn, O-doped) LPE mesa formed on an n-type (Te-doped) LPE layer grown on an n-type Czochralski-grown substrate. A de... View full abstract»

    The regularity of the pulsed discharges in the plasma display panel is attributed to processes which automatically damp out perturbations from equilibrium conditions. With rectangular wave excitation, these processes are controlled by the dependence of wall voltage changes during a discharge on the cell voltage at the beginning of a discharge. Conditions for stability and instability are derived f... View full abstract»

    The plasma display panel, in its usual mode, retains information in the form of wall charges that determine whether or not a sequence of discharges will be maintained at a given cell. These discharges are stable in the sense that a perturbation in wall voltage at a particular discharge will damp out over the succeeding discharges. Recent work has shown that a cell in a plasma display panel can exi... View full abstract»

    Cathodochromic dark-trace tubes using KC1 as the screen material have been built for at least three decades. Recently developed cathodochromic sodalite materials give improved storage-display tube performance over the standard KC1 tubes. The induced cathodochromic coloration in both sodalite and KC1 is the result of F-center absorption. A limitation of KC1 is that after repeated and prolonged expo... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    In a color picture tube using an in-line arrangement of three beams and the conventional shadow mask, the transmission of the shadow mask must be made very low in the corner regions in order to avoid the overlapping of adjacent in-line trios of landed beam dots on the screen. An improved design of aperture alignment on a shadow mask was developed for the in-line three beams in order to avoid this ... View full abstract»

    Though the beam-indexing color television display has some obvious advantages when compared with other display systems, the electron-optical demands are very high. First, these demands and the imaging system to be used are discussed. It turns out that the beam must be astigmatic to obtain optimum performance. The beam shape is prescribed by the deflection-coil design. This beam shape, giving rise ... View full abstract»

    Typically, dry-process-recording media is sensitive only in the ultraviolet (UV) region of the spectrum, where current phosphors and faceplate glasses are either inadequate or unavailable. Thus, it was considered necessary to develop new phosphors and fiber-optic faceplates for incorporation in high-resolution cathode-ray tubes (CRTs) to be used for these dry-process real-time-recording applicatio...

    The Lumatron is a high-resolution storage and projection display device that separates the functions of light generation and modulation that are combined in the normal CRT or DVST. The modulation function is achieved in a single vacuum chamber by the formation of a depth-modulated diffraction pattern in a deformable medium with a fine electrostatically focused and deflected electron beam.

    Recent developments in the solid-state light valve promise a high-quality projection display. The heart of the solid-state light valve is a cathode-ray tube which operates with a modulated and scanning write beam depositing charge on an electrooptic crystal target. The charge pattern on the target causes optical changes which result in modulation of an external light source. The tube incorporates ... View full abstract»
