I am interested to find out if the pixel size on a monitor screen can vary. I mean if there are monitors where the pixel size is smaller then others. Can this constitue a better resolution ?

You mean the Dot Pitch I assumed.  Yes, it would make a huge difference with image on a 0.25 vs. a 0.28..  This is measured by how far apart the dot pitch of the monitor is, the closer (smaller the figure) the better image.

There are (of course) more things to consider than mere dot-pitch. Misconvergence for instance can plague the most sophisticated monitor with a .22 dot pitch. The reason I mention this is that misconv. can be very difficult to adjust by the layperson. The trinitron tubes suffer more from misconv. than most monitors and also have stripes running across the screen to reinforce the slot-mask.(Clearly visible on a white screen) Depending on monitor size there are one (15") or two stripes (17"). I can go on and on about this, but as a rule of thumb you can say that sharpness and picture quality are related to smaller dot-pitch figures. The best way of determining monitor quality are your own two eyes.(!) If it's in a box, ask the vendor to open it, hook it up and let you look at it. You can put 10 identical, (same brand, type, size and callibration) monitors next to each other and still get 10 different viewing experiences. Train your eyes in spotting "problem areas" when looking at monitors. Sorry about the huge amount of information, but monitors are sort of a hobby to me...
