Abstract

Color plasma discharge display devices are being developed for varied applications, such as data terminals, point of sale recorders, aircraft instrumentation, and so forth. The conventional monochrome plasma display devices using a mixture of neon and other gases contain a plurality of cells which, when selected, discharge and emit a bright orange red glow. The cell discharge also emits ultraviolet light which, when applied to phosphor coating on the walls of the discharge cells, produces a color radiation of any of several colors depending on the phosphor used.
