Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Mesh Structure for Electroluminescent Storage CRT Without Transparent
This publication describes a mesh structure for a large-area
electroluminescent (EL) faceplate in storage CRT. The disclosed mesh structure
eliminates the requirement of a transparent conductive layer.
The resistance of the transparent conductor bottom layer (viewing side)
causes a voltage drop, phase shift, and especially an excessive power
dissipation in the electrode layer. This poses a major problem for large-area
faceplates, and marginally acceptable operation is possible only at low
frequencies (e.g., 500 Hz) with sine waves. However, the severe price one has
to pay is a proportionately lower luminance. Further, with sine waves, the E-
beam switching of an EL faceplate can only be performed for about half the time
period of the sustaining voltage waveform, thereby leading to a reduction in the
time required to write the whole faceplate.
A resistive mesh structure which provides current-limiting resistance between
a conducting mesh and multiplicity of a small-area active region was recently
proposed. The conducting mesh of such a proposed structure is disposed on a
thick dielectric layer to reduce the possibility of catastrophic breakdown under the
The present structure is based on the realization that the reverse
configuration from the proposed structure would form a resistive mesh structure
which no longer requires a transparent conducting layer. However, it is
necessary now to improve the contrast by depositing a black layer which is
patterned into a mesh, on which is disposed the thick dielectric layer mesh of the
bottom conductor mesh. Further, the resistive layer should now be transparent
so as to transmit the EL luminance.
The drawing shows the present structure in cross section. The first layer is
the black cermet film 1 (e.g., 2,000 Angstroms of Au:MgO) which is patterned
