  • Patent number: 7990065
    Abstract: The PDP has a front panel, and has a back panel with address electrodes formed thereon. Front panel has display electrodes including first electrodes and second electrodes formed on a front glass substrate, and a dielectric layer covering display electrodes. Further, the first electrodes and the dielectric layer include glass frit, which contains at least one of molybdenum oxide, magnesium oxide and cerium oxide, and also include a softening point exceeding 550° C. The above-described makeup suppresses a coloring phenomenon in the dielectric layer and the front glass substrate, thereby implementing a plasma display panel with a high luminance.

  • Patent number: 7969092
    Abstract: A single substrate AC and/or DC gas discharge (plasma) display device comprised of hollow microspheres containing ionizable gas at a predetermined pressure, each microsphere being positioned on the surface of the substrate or within a substrate cavity, well, or hollow. Each microsphere is in electrical contact with 2, 3, or more electrodes. The AC or DC gas discharge within each microsphere emits photons in the visible and/or invisible range. In one embodiment, photons from the gas discharge within a microsphere excite a luminescent substance or material such as a phosphor that emits photons in the visible and/or invisible spectrum. The microsphere may contain the luminescent substance or the substance may be located separately from, but in close proximity to, the microsphere.

  • Patent number: 7919922
    Abstract: Provided are a green phosphor for a plasma display panel (PDP) represented by Formula 1 and a PDP including a phosphor layer formed of the same: (Y1-x-yGdx)Al3(BO3)4:Tby??Formula 1 where 0?x<1, 0<y<1 and 0<x+y<1. The luminance saturation characteristic of a green phosphor layer can be improved using the green phosphor for a PDP according to the present embodiments, and the green phosphor can also be mixed with conventionally used green phosphors. Image quality can be improved according to a mixing rate of the green phosphor and conventionally used green phosphors since color reproduction range widens and luminance does not decrease compared to using the conventional green phosphors.

  • Patent number: 7906907
    Abstract: A Plasma Display Panel (PDP) includes: a first substrate and a second substrate, a plurality of barrier ribs disposed between the substrates to define discharge cells and including single walled barrier ribs and double walled barrier ribs, a plurality of discharge electrodes disposed on portions of the panel corresponding to the barrier ribs to supply a discharge voltage to the discharge cells, and phosphor layers formed in the discharge cells. The barrier ribs include single wall barrier ribs and double wall barrier ribs. The discharge electrodes disposed on the single wall barrier ribs are commonly used to generate a discharge in the adjacent discharge cells, and thus, discharge areas can be extended. Also, since the discharge spaces of the discharge cells are asymmetrically formed, the brightness of discharge cells that have a relatively low brightness can be increased.
