Abstract : In its normal operation the plasma panel exhibits a bistable range in which the cells can exist in either of two stable modes. The 'on' state results from a discharge every half cycle, and the 'off' state corresponds to no discharges. This investigation is concerned with the attainment of multiple stable states with corresponding multiple intensities. The application of this technology is related most directly to computer output displays where the inherent memory of the multiple states is desirable. (Author)
