Abstract

The emitting structure of multi-channel-type flat fluorescent lamps (FFLs) combined by a lenticular-lens-patterned diffuser plate was optimized by the ray tracing technique. The optimal parameters such as the distance between the channels of the FFL and the distance between the FFL and the diffuser plate were suggested from the viewpoint of the luminance uniformity. The best luminance uniformity, which was higher than 90%, was obtained at the channel distance of 4 mm and the distance of 12.5 mm between the FFL and the patterned diffuser plate.
