We have proposed the highly scattering optical transmission (HSOT) polymer, and have applied it to a high efficiency backlight for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). It is an important candidate for new various optical devices. In the present work, the multiple scattering modeling simulation has been developed. Also the effect of adjacent particles inside the HSOT polymer is demonstrated. It follows that the numerical calculation considering the effect of adjacent particles has precisely reproduced multiple scattering phenomena inside the HSOT polymer. For an application of HSOT polymer to LCD backlighting system, the optimal design of illuminating property was conducted by determining the internal particle condition.
