Abstract

Thin-film phosphors offer some unique advantages for computer displays. In spite of their low luminous efficiency due to optical effect (light trapping in thin film), thin-film phosphor screens have trapping in thin film), thin-film phosphor screens have been shown to exhibit high contrast and high resolution even under bright ambient.
