Abstract : The patent relates to a tubular plasma display consisting of an array of parallel glass capillary tubes sealed in a plenum and attached to a rigid substrate, having different thermal expansion properties limiting operational temperature range, the improvements being an extension to the substrate creating a gap which separates the tube manifold from the nearest point where the tube and substrate are bonded.
