Abstract

Light pipes and diffusers used for backlighting liquid crystal displays typically collect less than half the light radiated from circuit board-mounted lamps. Although an additional component could be added to serve as a reflector, the advantage of increased light generally does not offset the space and cost reqnire- ments. Thus, the combination of a lamp reflector with an existing part is desired.
