plasma display panel


type of flat panel display common to large television displays (81 cm or larger) consisting of a matrix of pixels between two glass plates holding an inert mixture of noble gases that can be turned into a plasma by applying a voltage across the cell such that the plasma starts emitting electrons, which then excite phosphors to emit light and create a colour image
