Abstract
Shortcoming of a planar self-emitting device is only a small fraction of light generated in the device available due to a total internal reflection at the air/substrate interface. To increase a luminance efficiency of the device, microlens arrays are most useful: they extract the total internal reflection of light at the air/substrate interface. In this study, we investigated photoinduced reorientation behavior of dye-doped polymerizable liquid crystals to fabricate a novel planar microlens array film as an optical component for a self-emitting device.
