A front-panel structure with microholes in its sustain electrode for use as a macroscopic plasma display panel to achieve high UV radiation efficiency through the micro-hollow effect is proposed. When the Xe/Ne/Ar (4/76/20) pressure is 50 Torr and the driving frequency is AC 20 kH, compared with a conventional structure, the electrode with a microholes produces a high IR intensity and low a electron energy. The excitation energy measured by optical emission spectroscope is 1.4eV. The IR intensity of the structure with microholes is about 20% higher than that of conventional plasma display panel cells.
