Abstract

We proposed a polarized laser backlight to improve light use efficiency of liquid crystal displays, and evaluated its basic polarization properties. In order not to degrade the polarization state, light guide plates were fabricated of polymer free of orientational and photoelastic birefringence, which is called zero-zero-birefringence polymer.
