Abstract

Light-guide plates (LGPs) with aperiodic or size-varied microstructures are widely used in edge-lit light-source backlight systems for their high uniformity. In this Letter we designed a LGP with periodic and single-sized microstructures and analyzed the relationship between the holistic arrangement density of the microstructures and the uniformity. By controlling the holistic arrangement density of the microstructures, the uniformity could also be increased.
