Title:
FLAT PANEL DISPLAY AND METHOD INVOLVING COLUMN ELECTRODE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2000051154
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
A structure and method for forming a column electrode for a field emission display device wherein the column electrode (702) is disposed beneath the field emitters and the row electrode. In one embodiment, the present invention comprises depositing a resistor layer (706) over portions of a column electrode (702). Next, an inter-metal dielectric layer (708) is deposited over the column electrode. In the present embodiment, the inter-metal dielectric layer (708) is deposited over portions of the resistor layer (706) and over pad areas (704a, 704b) of the column electrode (702). After the deposition of the inter-metal dielectric layer (708), the column electrode (702) is subjected to an anodization process such that the exposed regions of the column electrode (702) are anodized. In so doing, the present invention provides a column electrode structure (702) which is resistant to column to row electrode shorts and which is protected from subsequent processing steps.
