Author Affiliations +
Imaging Systems Technology (IST) is engaged in the research and development of large flexible displays using Plasmaspheres as the pixel element. Plasma-spheres are hollow spheres formed of glass containing an ionizable gas. Plasmaspheres are ultra rugged and lightweight. Thus displays made with Plasma-spheres may be made ultra rugged and lightweight. Plasma-sphere displays can be economically mass-produced with low cost roll-to-roll process. They can also be economically produced in low quantities using batch process. Because these displays are lightweight, rugged, and low cost they will find application in rugged military and industrial environments. Additionally, because they can be very large and flexible, they will find future applications in emergent technologies such as large conformable displays for simulators, large command and control centers, or field deployable systems. Currently, IST has successfully demonstrated small flexible monochrome and color Plasmas-sphere displays. In this paper, IST will report on current research progress including the development of a 20” flexible prototype.
