We proposed highly scattering optical transmission (HSOT) polymers and applied it to a light pipe of a backlighting system for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). The HSOT polymer backlighting system having not only approximately twice the brightness but also twice the efficiency of the conventional one was realized based on analysis of multiple scattering in the HSOT polymers. The problem of color dispersion which had been believed to be the nature of scattering phenomenon was solved by optimizing the heterogeneous structures in the HSOT polymers. As a result, the HSOT polymer backlighting system with sufficient color uniformity was achieved. In addition, the HSOT polymer backlighting system was composed of fewer parts than those of the conventional transparent one. The HSOT polymer backlighting system is suitable for recent thin LCDs because of these advantages.
