Abstract

In conventional AC plasma display panel fabrication, conductor arrays are formed on a pair of glass plates, the individual conductors being disposed substantially orthogonal to each other, the conductors overcoated with a dielectric and a protective layer, sealed about their edges, and the resulting container filled with an ionizable gas. One of the methods of providing the conductor arrays is by bonding metallic conductors to the glass plate. However, in the large-size plasma display devices, metallic spacer elements are required within the display area to maintain a uniform discharge gap across the entire display surface.
