The characteristic properties of microscale capillary plasma electrode structures were experimentally investigated and compared to the dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) structure. The vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) emission from the capillary plasma electrode discharges (CPEDs) was more intense and more efficient than the one from the DBD. Based on VUV emission characteristics, it is confirmed that the CPED-based plasma display could be a possible candidate to find the breakthrough in the luminance and luminous efficiency of plasma display.
