Abstract:

THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR IMPROVED DISPLAYS TO DEAL WITH MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DATA FROM COMPLEX EXPERIMENTS. EVEN WITH A GREAT DEAL OF COMPUTER MANIPULATION, THE RESULTS MUSTBE PRESENTED TO THE EXPERIMENTER IN COMPREHENSIBLE FORM. THIS IS BEST DONE USING HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR GRAPHICS. THEDISPLAY SHOULD BE LARGE ENOUGH SO THAT A GROUP OF EXPERIMENTERS CAN WORK WITH IT AND INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER, AND IT SHOULD BE BRIGHT ENOUGH SO THAT THEY CAN DO THIS IN A RESONABLY WELL-LIT ROOM, ENABLING THEM TO CONSULT NOTES AND OTHER MATERIAL. WORK IS PLANNED TO IMPROVE THE RESOLUTION OF SUPERSIZE TM FLAT, THIN, BRIGHT, FULL-COLOR FLATSCREEN R GAS-ELECTRON-PHOSPHOR (GEP) DISPLAY PANELS. THEY WILL BE WINDOW-GLASS-FLAT, REAL-TIME VIDEO DISPLAYS, 4 FT 2 OR LARGER, AND ONLY 3-IN THICK. SUCH DEVICES ALSO CAN BE USED IN OTHER APPLICATIONS: POWERPLANT AND PROCESS CONTROL, TELECONFERENCING, COMMAND AND CONTROL, COMPUTER-AIDED DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING, TRAINING, AND EDUCATION, AMONG OTHERS. COMPARED WITH PROJECTION SYSTEMS, FLATSCREEN R PANELS WILL BE LESS BULKY AND THEREFORE MORE PORTABLE; THEY WILL BE BRIGHTER, CLEARER, HAVE WIDER VIEWING ANGLES, AND WILL NOT REQUIRE FOCUS OR CONVERGENCE ADJUSTMENTS. THEY CAN BE FAR LARGER AND MUCH LIGHTER THAN DIRECT-VIEW CRTS, AND THEY HAVE NO GEOMETRICAL DISTORTION DUE TO DEFLECTION NONLINEARITY OR FACEPLATE CURVATURE. FLATSCREEN R PANELS ARE EFFECTIVELY FLAT, MATRIX-ADDRESSED, MULTIPLE-BEAM CRTS, WITH ALL THE FLEXIBILITY IN APPLICATION OF THE CRT BUT IN A LARGER AND MORE CONVENIENT PACKAGE.
