The luminance efficiency of a plasma display panel is directly related to the vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) light emitted from excited xenon atoms and molecules. The emission efficiency of 173 nm VUV light is measured in terms of the xenon mole fraction (χ) and is shown to become considerably enhanced at a high xenon mole fraction. For example, the emission efficiency at χ=0.35 under a pressure of 400 Torr is more than 2.5 times that at χ=0.1. The experimental data agree remarkably well with theoretical predictions.

    Classical or neoclassical tearing modes (NTMs) perturb the ideal axisymmetry of tokamaks. As a consequence of symmetry breaking a neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV) appears, that depends on the island amplitude. This work shows that in the low collisionality regimes NTV has a key role in...
