  10. STTR Phase II: Improved Addressing Speed of Plasma-sphere Arrays

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is a study to expand the high speed addressing work conducted under Phase I using monochrome Plasma-spheres to color Plasma-spheres. Plasma-spheres are hollow transparent shells that encapsulate a selected pressurized gas. When a voltage is applied across the shell, the gas ionizes and glows. Plasma-spheres are applied to flexible, el ...
