The vacuum sealing process with a base vacuum of 10-5 Torr is adopted to minimize the residual impurity gas. The address and sustain discharges in the 42-in PDP prepared by the vacuum-sealing process are observed by using the ICCD. As a result, the ICCD observation illustrates that thanks to the reduction of the impurity level by the vacuum-sealing process, the surface and plate-gap discharges are initiated and extinguished very fast and the corresponding IR emissions are also intensified.
