Using proprietary manufacturing processes, micro-optical elements are molded directly into a light guide and optimized to deliver more collimated light, which increases the efficiency of the optical system. These micro-optical light extraction elements increase brightness, enhance uniformity, and maximize efficiency.
GLT backlights allows LCDs to be illuminated with fewer LEDs compared to other lighting technologies. LEDs are available in virtually any color. Mechanical holding features can be designed into the backlight or on a separate frame. GLT designs lightguide assemblies to be 100% plug-and-play, resulting in a complete mechanical and electrical drop-in solution.
Global Lighting white LED lightguides for LCDs include a reflector with adhesive, a plastic housing that encloses a light guide, a diffuser film, top and bottom light management films, a top mask, and a protective film.
