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 6,000cd/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.
