What does PDP mean?
Plasma display panel (PDP) is a type of flat panel display that uses small cells containing electrically charged ionized gases or plasmas, to produce an image. PDP consists of millions of tiny gas-filled compartments, or cells, between two panels of glass with parallel electrodes deposited on their surfaces. When a voltage pulse passes between two electrodes, the gas breaks down and produces weakly ionized plasma, which emits Ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The UV radiation activates color phosphors and visible light is emitted from each pixel.
