Two years ago, at the SPIE AeroSense 1999 Conference, Quantum Vision reported on a new technology that we predicted would become the best choice for projection displays. Quantum Vision has now developed this alternate approach, the resonant microcavity phosphor [RMP] for use in CRTs. The Quantum Vision patented technology provides a robust, high technology replacement for the powder phosphor currently used in most CRTs. This emissive component is based upon a rugged thin film phosphor, capable of generating high brightness, extended lifetime, expanded dynamic range and higher resolution images. Current measurements and theoretical predictions indicate that RMP-CRT projection displays can lead to much higher light throughput and electron beam limited resolution, while having a cost profile consistent with high volume CRT products. Other features make it ideal for use with holographic and diffractive optical elements. Data is presented demonstrating the characteristics of red, blue and green RMP-CRT faceplates operated on a demountable CRT test station design by Quantum Vision.
