Abstract

This study applies a novel fabrication process that combines anisotropic wet etching of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafers with electroforming to manufacture precision stampers. Micron-sized features, such as trapezoidal grooves and truncated pyramidal prisms, can be fabricated and distributed accurately. Because feature geometry and distribution can be accurately realized using the proposed scheme, design optimization of light guide plates (LGPs) becomes realistic. By observing the illumination characteristics of light emitting diode (LED) edge-lit LGPs, the distribution pattern of the LGP is transformed into a parameter design with seven anchor spacing and the spacing modulation amplitude of the micro features adjacent to LEDs. The proposed fuzzy optimization scheme manipulates distribution parameters to obtain an LGP design with high illumination uniformity. The design of a 3.5-inch LED edge-lit LGP is used as an illustrative example. The optical software program TracePro is applied to simulate luminance performance of BLM. The optimization converges rapidly and provides the optimum design with an average brightness of 2,266 (nit) and uniformity of 90% without use of diffusive sheets. Thus work demonstrates the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
