Abstract

In this paper, a method is proposed for highly precisely simulating the optical behavior of a light guide plate, which has microstructures of rough texture and rugged edges thereon. By adopting the 'equivalent medium-immersed measurement' to establish precise optical characteristic of the light guide plate, the simulated results of luminance distribution are much accordant with experimental measurement. This method will be useful in luminance uniformity evaluation and hot-spot check in advance, and it will greatly contribute to save time and cost of product development.
