The theoretical and technological principles of pulsed gas discharge matrices with inherent memory were investigated. Based on results from study NT 474, the quality of the panel consisting of a priming channel, driftspace, and a display cell was enhanced. For the display cell, a design using a wire cathode is the most suitable. Time delay investigations indicate that certain ignition of the discharge channels can be obtained. The luminous density of the display panel developed exceeds that of all others to date.
