Part of the Phosphor Science and Engineering series, Cathodoluminescence and Photoluminescence: Theories and Practical Applications addresses advances and challenges in the field. The 168-page volume provides recommendations for improving cathodoluminescent and photoluminescent phosphor display devices in terms of energy efficiency, image quality, color fidelity, operational lifetime and production cost. It relates flickering phenomena to the threshold resolution power of the human eye and optical properties of bulk phosphor particles. The advantages of a powdered screen over a thin-film type in relation to optimal screening techniques are presented. Raw materials, flux materials, heat treatments and by-products involved in producing high-quality phosphor powders are described.
