Class Information
Number: 362/600
Name: Illumination > Edge lighted panel
Description: Subject matter indented comprising a light source or support therefor combined with a light transmissive material in the form of a solid having two opposite surfaces with overall dimensions very much greater than the distance between them and having at least one narrow surface (i.e., "edge") joining the two opposite surfaces and exposed to light from the source such that light from the source enters the material through the narrow surface and is transmitted within the material by internal reflections from the opposite surfaces or by nodal transmission.
