Paper Abstract

We present several different estimation methods to calculate the total luminous flux and luminous efficiency of a backlight module by using the measurement data from a luminance meter. We used the integrating sphere to measure a backlight module and found the luminous efficiency as 72.232%. With this result as a reference, we compared total luminous efficiencies obtained by five estimation methods, which are based on the luminance distributions along the x axis and y axis and measured by a luminance meter. In addition to these experimental results, we discussed the effect of dividing the luminous region into small areas on faster computations of total luminous flux of a backlight module.
