The Future of Semiconductor Illuminator, written by John Popovich, available at column8.com describes John’s 15 years development of LED illuminators, research and development on numerous novel substrates, optics, LED backlights, waveguides accomplished in a personal facility and an optoelectronics laboratory.
You can down load a PDF file of 130 pages on his studies on how to design a proper light guide, with educed cost, mass, and thickness and with greatly increased optical efficiency and brightness. A reference design for an edge illuminated 4mm thick 65” outdoor LCD is included. You may contact John directly for a commercial discussion on utilization of his technology and or LED light waveguide application consultancy.
