Abstract:

The results of a study and investigation directed toward the design of an electroluminescent ferroelectric ELF display panel are described. As a result of this effort, experimental display panels utilizing electroluminescence and ferro electricity have been constructed and evaluated. In addition, studies of the electroluminescent and ferroelectric materials as well as element switches were made to insure the use of optimum components in the ELF panels. Studies were per formed on display panel resolution, gray scale, improved screen fabrication, and improved switch ing devices. Techniques of interconnection of modules to form a large area display have been formulated. Peripheral drive circuitry has been designed and developed for use with the ELF dis play panel. The circuitry can, however, be applied to a variety of cross-grid type displays with relatively little modification. Author
