Summary: 
We propose a new cell configuration which newly employs discharge deactivation film (DDF). DDF is formed on MgO surface in stripe figure to cover it around the boundary of neighboring display lines. DDF prevents discharge cross talk between the lines even in case of stripe rib structure by virtue of its low secondary electron emission coefficient (γi). DDF also makes better address discharge response because it presumably moves address discharge closer to the surface dischage gap. On behalf of mass productivity for large size PDPs DDF is formed by simple screen-printing and firing method. And it consists of very fine Al2O3 grains without any inorganic binder. Such DDF is visually transparent and then helpful for high luminance and luminous efficiency. In addition to it, such DDF is presumably equipped with gas purifying character and then helpful for deep blue color and good white color balance accordingly. Further, DDF combined with sustain electrodes in specific figure which we call "CAPABLE DDF" brings about so high luminous efficiency for stripe rib structure as it may surpass box rib one. This probably means that vertically open discharge space in stripe rib structure is advantageous for high luminous efficiency. In our latest work for 46 inch-high definition PDPs, 2.1 lm/W and 1200 cd/m2 were both achieved under practical driving condition. Still it will be as high as 2.4 lm/W if each sustain electrode is shared by neighboring display lines. CAPABLE DDF allows more tolerance in DDF printing process. It also makes optical cross talk negligible even in stripe rib structure. And its durability against long time operation proved to have no specific problem. This presumably means that re-landing of sputtered MgO never reaches DDF surface. We believe this new technology can promise the future of stripe rib.
