Paper Abstract

A performance comparison of backlights containing a tubular serpentine fluorescent lamp (TSFL), a flat fluorescent lamp (FFL), and an array of LEDs as light sources is presented. Factors such as efficacy, color rendering capability, temperature dependence and dimmability are discussed. Additionally, key parameters considered include the mechanical configuration and overall depth of the backlight system (including filters/diffusers); shock and vibration susceptibility; manufacturing complexity; and optical performance, such as luminance and uniformity.
