Awesome paper. Great summary of benefits and technology.
A few months ago my company inquired about purchasing the PDP report
from display search which I can only guess contained this data and they wanted 5000$ US for it
Glad to see some of their info getting onto the internet.
It’s good to know I didn’t waste my time reading all the PDP patents this year as this paper confirms some of what I’ve learned. The only surprise is Figure 11 (right side)
which is a structure I’ve not read about yet? I am disappointed that figure 11
is a “Display Search” assumption. They couldn’t get actual info from ADPC?“Because it will be difficult to achieve 10 lm/W with a conventional three electrode surface discharge structure, we would expect a 2-electrode spatial discharge structure to be used which can enhances efficiency”
And this is actually not a true statement because it is well known that 3-electrode + auxiliary electrode design has achieved 10-15lm/w efficiency and more than one manufacturer is pursuing this design. However, as they say manufacturing cost may limit the use of it. 2-electrode may be the way to go.
Another point is that figure 7 (right side)
is a Samsung SDI structure that Samsung has patented and has worked on for several years now. In 2006 Samsung claimed that using this structure achieved ~ 5 lumens per watt. Problem is that it is seems rather difficult to make a vertical electrode built into the cell wall.
Anyway, apart from the assumptions this is a great summary…..
