Abstract

Arrays as large as 15×15 of microdischarge devices having inverted pyramidal silicon cathodes 50 μm×50 μm and SiO2Si3N4polymer composite dielectrics have been fabricated and characterized with Ne gas. The lifetimes, reliability, and ignition characteristics of the arrays are superior to those of earlier designs having a single polymer dielectric. Operating voltages as low as 150 V for a 10×10 pixel array and 1000 Torr of Ne have been measured. Single 50 μm×50 μm pyramidal cathode devices operate at voltages as low as 113 V when the Ne pressure is 900 Torr.
