Candescent's full color, full video ThinCRT is an FED-based display which allows the advantages of high voltage phosphors to be realized. These advantages include good color gamut, availability, long life, and high efficiency. A major constraint associated with the use of HV phosphor includes the requirement for a larger separation between faceplate and backplate in order to hold-off the higher voltage. This in turn a) requires the use of high aspect ratio internal support structures, and b) requires that an electron focusing structure be incorporated. The internal support structure, including methods of controlling the vertical voltage distribution on the walls, is discussed. This paper also gives data on the molybdenum Spindt emitters, including I-V curves showing the low switching voltage obtained in pat by the small diameter gate holes.
