Abstract:

The Naval Training Systems Center under separate development contract to Allied Signal Corp. See Enclosure 11.1 developed single crystal faceplates which held promise of providing significantly improved life span over conventional power phosphor cathode ray tubes CRT while maintaining acceptable resolution and light output characteristics. Single crystal faceplates being evaluated are composed of yttrium aluminum garnet YAG with an epitaxial cerium phosphor layer grown on the YAG substrate producing a cathodoluminescent material CEYAG. The single crystal nature of these faceplates should allow higher resolution no phosphor grains and higher thermal conductivity
