Abstract

In gaseous discharge display panels, orthogonal conductor arrays are formed on glass plates or substrates and suitably insulated from contact with the gas by dielectric layers, which may have refractory surfaces to prevent sputtering of the electrodes or dielectric. When sealed in the appropriate gas composition and pressure, ionization signals may be selectively applied to groups of orthogonal conductors to provide a gaseous discharge display of selected characters.
