Since the phosphor is of a very high persistence quality, the picture created on the CRT screen will be visible for several minutes without the need for being refreshed. The grid made of very thin, high quality wire, is located with a dielectric and is mounted just before the screen on the path of the electron beam from the gun.

This flood of electrons is produced by a “flood gun” This is separate frame the electron gun that produces the main electron beam. Also, since the electrons hit xisplay CRT screen at very low speeds though they are slightly accelerated in the last part of their journey to the CRT by a positively charged aluminum coatingthe contrasts are not sharp. But this technique also produces a momentary flash, which may be unpleasant to the viewer.

Pictures drawn on there will be seen dvs several minutes minutes before fading.

But instead of the electron beam directly writing the pictures disp,ay the phosphor coated CRT screen, the writing is done with the help of a fine-mesh wire grid. What is Dot Pitch? Related Articles on Computer Graphics. This is mainly so when only portions of the picture dislpay to be modified in an interactive manner.


A pattern of positive charges is deposited on the grid and this pattern is transferred to the phosphor coated CRT by a continuous flood of electrons.

Just behind the storage mesh is a second grid called the collector. What is Low Resolution? Since the collector has slowed the electrons down, they may not be able to produce sharp and bright images. This removes all charges and clears the screen.


Dinesh authors the hugely popular Computer Notes blog. The simple method cvst to apply a positive charge to the negatively charged mesh so that it gets neutralized.

Thus, the electrons attracted by the positive charges pass through the mesh, travel on to the phosphor coated screen and display the picture. Now the problem arises as to how do we remove the picture, when the time for it’s erasure or visplay comes up.

DVST Definition from PC Magazine Encyclopedia

The function of the collector is to smooth out the flow of flood electrons. The negatively charged mesh repels others. To over come this problem, the screen itself is maintained at a high positive potential by means of a voltage applied to a thin aluminum coating between the tube face and the phosphor. It is similar to CRT as far as the electronic gun and phosphor-coated mechanisms are concerned.


For any type of query or something that you think visplay missing, please feel free to Contact us. Since a large number of electrons are produced at high velocity by the flood gun, the collector grid, which is also negatively charged reduces, the acceleration on these electrons and the resulting low velocity flood pass through the collector and get attracted by the positively charged portions of the storage mesh Since the electrons are negatively chargedbut are repelled disply the other portions of the mesh which are negatively charged Note that the pattern of positive charges residing on the storage mesh actually defines the picture to be displayed.

But only those electrons that hit the dotted circle pass through and hit the CRT screen. Where he writes how-to guides around Computer fundamentalcomputer software, Computer programming, and web apps.

The dotted circle on the mesh is created by positive charges the flood of electrons hit the mesh at all points. What is VGA video graphics array? What is Interlaced or Non-Interlaced Monitors?
