Abstract : National Electrotechnical Inst. (Italy). CALCULATIONS ABOUT BARRIER-INJECTION ELECTROLUMINESCENCE, by G. Bonfiglioli, P. Brovetto, and A. Suardo. July 62, 22p. incl. illus. (Technical note no. 7) (Contract AF 61(052)328) Unclassified report DESCRIPTORS: *Luminescence, *Phosphors, Zinc compounds, Sulfides, Electric fields, Electrons, Electric currents. Identifiers: Electroluminescence.A calculation is given of the current flowing across a condenser-type electroluminescent cell excited with a constant-slope voltage transient. This is the waveform used in preliminary experiments. The theory followed in this calculation is that advanced by Zalm, whereby tunnel effect at a surface barrier of finite cross extension is invoked. On these grounds, equations are developed which give the shape of the light pulse produced by the EL cell undergoing a linear transient of electrical potential. (Author)
