Samenvatting

PALC (Plasma Addressed Liquid Crystal) is one of the most promising technologies for large size flat panel displays. In this technology micro-discharges are used as electrical switches for the addressing of a liquid crystal layer. In view of the small size of the micro-discharges, discharge modelling is an indispensable tool for the optimisation of their properties. In this work we present a two-dimensional fluid model for the simulation of DC discharges and afterglows in the PALC geometry. The model comprises continuity equations and drift-diffusion equations for reactive particle species, a balance equation for the electron energy, and Poisson's equation for the electric field. Simulation results are in good agreement with experimental results.
