I need to develop a backlight solution using a grid of LED lights that have the light scattered before it reaches the light difuser material. This needs to happen in the shortest space possible (up to 2 cm width and with the LEDs as far apart as possible). I need the R&D to determine best solution to apply on the LEDs to scatter the light without loss (lenses?) and the best flexible light difuser material (I have my own idea on this).
This is mainly a material sourcing job, as it doesn't require much design (LED + light reflector/deflector + light difuser). I want to source existing products to build this product as this project isn't meant for manufacturing. If needed, only the light scattering/deflecing lense (or a better idea) can be designed, maybe as an acrylic lens, preferably a one piece item for several LEDs instead of individual lenses for each LED. It is a very simple project but I ask that when applying for the job you mention your ideas to scatter the light so I can choose the freelancer who best understands the requirements for the job.
