A regular TV has a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT). A CRT is basically a large vacuum tube in which a electric beam emanating from a single point in the neck of the tube scans the face of the tube very rapidly which, in turn, lights up red, green, or blue phosphors on the tube's surface to make an image.

Plasma TV is based on flouresent light. It contains cells in the two glass panels that are separated by a narrow gap which is injected with neon-xenon gas and then sealed in plasma form during the manufacturing process. The gas is electrically charged at specific times when you use the TV. The gas then puts out groups of red, green, or blue phosphors called pixels (picture element). The reason Plasma TVs are flat is because you don't need a tube. Using a sealed cell, you eliminate the need for a CRT.
