Surface light source element and liquid crystal display device, sign device and traffic control sign device using same

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6099135.

A surface light source device, comprising a light source (2); a light conductor (1) which has a light incident face (11) on at least one side end surface thereof which confronts the light source (2), and a light emitting face (12) on one surface thereof which is substantially perpendicular to the light incident face (11); and a light angle varying sheet (3) which is disposed at a side of the light emitting face (12) of the light conductor (1), wherein at least one of the light emitting face (12) and a back surface (13) of the light conductor (1) comprises a minute structure having an average slant angle of 0.5 to 7.5 degrees. The light angle varying sheet (3) may comprise a prism sheet having a plurality of prisms (31) which are formed parallel to one another on at least one surface thereof. The minute structure may comprise a roughened surface which includes a plurality of fine convex members each having a substantially spherical surface or a plurality of prism arrays having slant surfaces which extend parallel to said light incident face (11) and which have an average slant angle of 0.5 to 7.5 degrees.
