Noguchi, H., Tsuchiya, R., Yano, H., and Nakamura, H., "A Mercury-Free CFL Backlight for Car-Navigation Display," SAE Technical Paper 2002-01-0978, 2002, doi:10.4271/2002-01-0978.
A mercury-free backlight in which Xe-type small diameter CFLs are installed, has been developed. We have evaluated the 7-inch size backlight. Luminance of the backlight is 6,000 cd/m₂ at 6.5W. And this backlight has stable light output, rapid light output response and wide dimming capability over the wide temperature range. Therefore, it is suitable for a car navigation display.
