We have demonstrated the advanced highly scattering optical transmission (HSOT) polymer backlight that was designed by the HSOT designing simulation program. This backlight exhibited approximately three times higher luminance and 20% higher efficiency than the conventional flat-type HSOT backlight of 14.1-inch diagonal because of the microscopic prism structures at the bottom of the advanced HSOT light guide plate. The HSOT polymer containing the optimized heterogeneous structures produced homogeneous scattered light with forward directivity and sufficient color uniformity. Optimization of the heterogeneous structure is important in order to utilize the taper effect and the microscopic prism structures.
