【0001】 [0001]

【産業上の利用分野】本発明はディスプレイのバックライト、照光式操作スイッチ等に使用される面状の光源に係り、特に液晶ディスプレイのバックライトとして好適に用いることができる面状光源に関する。 The present invention relates to a display backlight, relates to a planar light source used for illuminated operation switch or the like, relates to a planar light source which may be used particularly suitably as a backlight of a liquid crystal display.

【0002】 [0002]

【従来の技術】一般にノート型パソコン、ワープロ等に使用される液晶のディスプレイのバックライト用の面状光源には、例えばEL、冷陰極管が使用されている。 BACKGROUND ART Generally, a notebook computer, a planar light source for back light of a liquid crystal display for use in a word processor or the like, for example EL, cold cathode tubes are used. E
Lはそれ自体が面状光源であり、冷陰極管は拡散板を用いて面状光源とされ、現在それらのバックライトの発光色はほとんどが白色とされている。 L is itself a planar light source, a cold cathode tube is a surface light source using a diffuser, most currently emission color of their backlight is white.

【0003】一方発光ダイオード(以下LEDと記す) [0003] Light emitting diodes (hereinafter referred to as LED)
もバックライト用光源として一部利用されている。 It has also been utilized as part of a light source for the backlight. しかしLEDを用いて白色発光を得る場合、従来では青色L However, when obtaining white light emission using an LED, in the conventional blue L
EDの発光出力が数十μWほどしかないため、他の赤色LED、緑色LEDを用いて白色発光を実現させるには、それら各色発光LEDの特性を合致させにくく色変化が大きいという欠点がある。 Since light output ED is only about several tens .mu.W, other red LED, the realizing white light emission with a green LED, there is a disadvantage that they hardly change in color is matched to the characteristics of each color light emitting LED is large. また、三原色のLEDを集合させて、同一平面上に幾何学的に同じ位置に配置しても、バックライトとしてはそれらのLEDを接近した位置で視認するため、均一な白色光源にすることは不可能であった。 Moreover, by aggregating the three primary colors of LED, they are arranged in a geometrically identical coplanar, because as the backlight viewing at a position close to their LED, be a uniform white light source It was impossible. 従って現在白色の液晶バックライトの面状光源には、大型では冷陰極管、小型〜中型にはELと使い分けられているのが現状で、LEDを用いた白色発光のバックライトはほとんど知られていない。 Thus the planar light source of the current white LCD backlight, in large cold-at present that for small-medium size used selectively and EL, backlight white light emission using an LED is largely unknown Absent.

【0004】また、白色発光、あるいはモノクロの光源として、一部では青色LEDチップの周囲を蛍光物質を含む樹脂で包囲して色変換する試みもあるが、チップ周辺は太陽光よりも強い放射強度の光線にさらされるため、蛍光物質の劣化が問題となり、特に有機蛍光顔料で顕著である。 [0004] The white light emitting, or as a monochrome light source, although in some there is also an attempt to color conversion surrounds the periphery of the blue LED chip with a resin containing a fluorescent substance, a strong radiation intensity than the chip peripheral sunlight due to exposure to the light, deterioration of the fluorescent substance becomes a problem is particularly pronounced in the organic fluorescent pigment. 更にイオン性の有機染料はチップ近傍では直流電界により電気泳動を起こし、色調が変化する可能性がある。 Further ionic organic dyes undergoes electrophoresed on a DC electric field in the tip vicinity, there is a possibility that the color tone is changed. また従来の青色LEDは蛍光物質で色変換するには十分な出力を有しておらず、たとえ色変換したとしても実用できるものではなかった。 The conventional blue LED has no sufficient output to the color conversion by the fluorescent substance, it was not be practiced even if if the color conversion.

【0005】 [0005]

【発明が解決しようとする課題】本発明はこのような欠点を解決するために成されたもので、その目的とするところは、LEDを用い、主としてバックライトとして利用できる白色発光可能な面状光源を実現すると共に、均一な白色発光を観測できる面状光源を提供することにあり、信頼性に優れたLEDの特性を利用し、各種操作スイッチ等に利用することにある。 The present invention 0005] has been made to solve such drawbacks, and has as its object, using the LED, white light emission can be planar available mainly as a backlight it is possible to realize a light source is to provide a planar light source can be observed uniform white light emission, utilizing the characteristics of the LED with excellent reliability, it is to utilize the various operation switches and the like.

【0006】 [0006]

【課題を解決する為の手段】本発明の面状光源は、窒化ガリウム系化合物半導体よりなる青色LED1と、該青色LED1と端面で光学的に接続されると共に、第一の主面及び第二の主面を持った透明な導光板2とを備える。 Means for Solving the Problems The planar light source of the present invention includes a blue LED1 consisting gallium nitride-based compound semiconductor, while being optically connected with said blue LED1 and the end surface, the first major surface and a second and a transparent light guide plate 2 having a principal surface of the. 面状光源は、青色LED1が発光する光を白色粉末 The planar light source is a white powder light blue LED1 emits light
が塗布された散乱層3により導光板2内に散乱させて、 There scatters the light guide plate 2 by the scattering layer 3 coated,
導光板2の第一の主面側の表面輝度を一定となるようにしている。 The surface brightness of the first main surface side of the light guide plate 2 is set to be constant. さらに、本発明の面状光源は、第一の主面上に、青色LED1からの発光により励起されて蛍光を発する蛍光物質が具備されている脱着可能なフィルム6を設けている。 Further, the surface light source of the present invention, on a first main surface, is provided with detachable film 6 fluorescent material is provided to emit excited by fluorescence by the emission from the blue LED1. 導光板2の第一の主面側から観測される発光色を、青色LED1からの発光色と蛍光物質からの光が合成された白色としている。 The emission color is observed from the first main surface side of the light guide plate 2, and a white light is synthesized from the light emitting color and the fluorescent substance from the blue LED1.

【0007】図1は本発明の面状光源の導光板2を第二の主面側から見た平面図である。 [0007] Figure 1 is a plan view of the surface light source of the light guide plate 2 of the present invention from the second main surface side. 導光板2は例えばアクリル、硝子等の透明な材料よりなり、その導光板2の端面に青色LED1が埋設されることにより、導光板2と青色LED1とが光学的に接続されている。 The light guide plate 2, for example acrylic, made of a transparent material such as glass, by blue LED1 is embedded in the end face of the light guide plate 2, the light guide plate 2 and the blue LED1 are optically connected. なお本発明において、青色LED1と導光板2の端面とが光学的に接続されているとは、簡単に言えば、導光板2の端面から青色LEDの光を導入することをいい、例えばこの図に示すように青色LED1を埋設することはもちろんのこと、青色LEDを接着したり、また、光フィバー等を用いて導光板2の端面に青色LEDの発光層を導くことによって実現可能である。 In the present invention, is that the end surfaces of the blue LED1 and the light guide plate 2 are optically connected, Briefly, refers to the introduction of a light blue LED from the end face of the light guide plate 2, for example, FIG. of course it is embedded in the blue LED1 as shown in, or adhered to a blue LED, also, the end face of the light guide plate 2 by using an optical Fiba like can be realized by directing the light emitting layer of the blue LED.

【0008】次に、散乱層3は、白色顔料で光を導光板2内に散乱させている。 [0008] Then, the scattering layer 3 is scatter light into the light guide plate 2 as a white pigment. 特に図1では前記散乱層3をストライプ状とし、第一の主面側の表面輝度が一定となるように、LED1に接近するにつれて、第二の主面側の単位面積あたりの散乱層3の面積を減じるようなパターンとし、さらにはLED1と最も離れた第二の主面の端部の面積はやや最大面積に比して小さくしている。 In particular, in Figure 1 the scattering layer 3 and a stripe-shaped, so that the surface luminance of the first main surface side is constant, as it approaches the LED1, per unit area of ​​the second main surface side of the scattering layer 3 a pattern as to reduce the area, more area of ​​the end portion of the second major surface furthest away and LED1 are smaller than the somewhat maximum area. ここで、図1中の■は散乱層3のパターンを表している。 Here, in FIG. 1 ■ represents the pattern of the scattering layer 3. 図1では青色LEDを一つの端面に六個配した構造としているが、導光板が四角形であれば四方の端面全てにLE Is a six arranged structure on one end surface of the blue LED in FIG. 1, if the light guide plate rectangle all four sides end faces of the LE

【0009】 [0009]

【作用】図2は本発明の面状光源を例えば液晶パネルのバックライトとして実装した場合の模式断面図である。 [Action] FIG 2 is a schematic sectional view when mounting the surface light source of the present invention, for example, as a backlight of a liquid crystal panel.
これは図1に示す面状光源の第二の主面側に、例えばチタン酸バリウム、酸化チタン、酸化アルミニウム等によりなる散乱反射層7と、例えばAlよりなるベース8とが積層された反射板を設置し、第一の主面側には表面に微細な凹凸が施された透明なフィルム6が設置され、このフィルム6の凹凸が施された表面上には青色LED1 This is the second major surface of the planar light source shown in FIG. 1, for example, barium titanate, titanium oxide, and a scattering reflection layer 7 comprising aluminum oxide or the like, for example, reflection plate and the base 8 are laminated of Al was placed, the first transparent film 6 in which fine unevenness is applied to the surface on the main surface side is installed, is on the surface irregularities of the film 6 is subjected blue LED1
の発光により励起されて蛍光を発する蛍光物質が塗布されている。 Fluorescent material emits excited by fluorescence by the light emitting is applied for.

【0010】まず図2の矢印で示すように、青色LED [0010] First, as shown by the arrows in FIG. 2, the blue LED
1から出た光は、チップ近傍で一部導光板2以外の外部に放射されるが、大部分の光は、導光板2の中を全反射を繰り返しながら、導光板2の端面に達する。 The light emitted from 1, but is radiated to the outside of the other part light guide plate 2 in the chip near, most of the light, while repeating total reflection through the light guide plate 2, reaches the end surface of the light guide plate 2. 端面に達した光は端面全てに形成された反射膜4に反射されて、 The light reaching the end face is reflected on the reflection film 4 formed on all end faces,
全反射を繰り返す。 Repeating the total reflection. この時、導光板2の第二の主面側に設けられた散乱層3により光は散乱され、散乱された光の一部は蛍光層5により吸収され同時に波長変換されて放射され、導光板2の第一の主面側から観測する発光色はこれらの光を合成した光が観測できる。 At this time, the light by the scattering layer 3 provided on the second main surface side of the light guide plate 2 is scattered, some of the scattered light is absorbed by the fluorescent layer 5 is emitted is wavelength converted at the same time, the light guide plate emission color is observed from the first main surface side of 2 can be observed the light obtained by combining those light. 例えば橙色の蛍光顔料からなる蛍光層5を設けた面状光源では、先に述べた作用により、青色LED1からの発光色が白色となって観測できる。 For example, in the orange fluorescent layer 5 provided with a planar light source comprising a fluorescent pigment, by the action described above, it can be observed the emission color from blue LED1 becomes white.

【0011】特に本発明では1つの青色LEDの発光波長はその主発光ピークが500nmよりも短く、その発光出力は200μW以上、更に好ましくは300μW以上の出力が必要である。 [0011] shorter than the emission wavelength of its main emission peak of the one blue LED is 500nm, especially in the present invention, the emission output than 200MyuW, more preferably requires output of more than 300 [mu] W. なぜなら発光波長が500nm This is because the emission wavelength is 500nm
以上であると全ての色が実現しにくくなり、またその発光出力が200μWよりも少ないと、たとえ導光板の端面に光学的に接続する青色LEDの数を増やしても、充分な明るさの均一な面状発光の光源が得られにくい傾向にあるからである。 Hardly any color achieved when there above, also when the light emission output is less than 200MyuW, even increasing the number of blue LED that even optically connected to the end face of the light guide plate, uniform bright enough planar light emitting light sources, such is because in the resulting less likely.

【0012】また本発明者は特願平5−318267号で、発光観測面と反対側の導光板の主面側に蛍光散乱層を形成することにより、均一な白色発光が可能な面状光源を提案した。 [0012] The present inventors have in Japanese Patent Application No. 5-318267, light emission observing surface side opposite by forming a fluorescent scattering layer on the main surface of the light guide plate, uniform white light can be planar light source It was proposed. しかしこの方法では、得られた面状光源において、色調を変えるには導光板に形成された蛍光散乱層を剥して、再び目的の色調となるような蛍光散乱層を印刷しなければならなかった。 However, in this method, the resultant surface light source, and peeled off fluorescent scattering layer formed on the light guide plate to change the color, we had to print the fluorescent scattering layer, such as again the tone of interest . ところが本発明では、 In the present invention, however,
蛍光層5と散乱層3がそれぞれ独立し、特に色調を決める蛍光層5が脱着可能なフィルム上に形成されているため、蛍光層5が形成されたフィルムを変えるだけで簡単に色調を変化させることができる。 Fluorescent layer 5 and the scattering layer 3 each independently, in particular since the fluorescent layer 5 for determining the color tone are formed on a detachable film, it changes the simply by color changing film phosphor layer 5 is formed be able to. また、同時に複数の色を分割発光させることもできる。 It is also possible to multiple the color splitting emitted simultaneously.

【0013】しかもフィルム6の第一の主面側と接する表面には凹凸が施されている為、発光された光を散乱させるのに非常に有用であり、またフィルム6が導光板2 [0013] Moreover since the unevenness can be applied to a surface in contact with the first main surface side of the film 6, is very useful to scatter the emitted light, also the film 6 is the light guide plate 2
に張り付いて干渉縞ができるのを防ぐことができる。 It is possible to prevent the possible interference fringes stuck to.
