Paper Abstract

A novel direct-emitting LED backlit for LCDs was demonstrated. Unlike the conventional white LED schemes for display applications, proposed blue light excited planar lighting (BLPL) exploits blue LED chip to remotely excite the YAG-phosphor film and thus render a uniform planar source, where the YAG-phosphor acts as the diffuser film and wavelength down converter simultaneously. Based on the diffusing characterization of YAG-phosphor layer, we examined the optical properties of the BLPL system in viewpoints of uniformity, luminance and mixing capability. Consequently, a prototype 10-mm-thickness BLPL module was demonstrated with 86% uniformity and 9800 nits without using any diffuser film or light guiding plate.
