Abstract

In the fabrication of conventional AC plasma panels, conductor arrays are formed on glass plates and overcoated with a glass dielectric. This fabrication is relatively time-consuming and requires a significant capital investment. The conductors may be formed by evaporation or other techniques, but must be firmly connected to the glass plate at a high resolution, and must be composed of materials which are good conductors as well as providing a thermal match between the metallic conductors and the glass plate. Finally, the conductors must be resistant to attack by the glass dielectric during dielectric reflow.
