A measurement of the secondary electron-emission coefficient γ from MgO film in a plasma display panel is carried out. The influence of the secondary electron emission on the breakdown voltage in microdischarges on the plasma display panel is investigated by making use of the Townsend sparking criterion. Experimental data agree well with theoretical results, verifying the previous theoretical model. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
