Diffusers are playing an increasingly important role in optics as a means to either improve uniformity of light applied for illumination of an object, or to improve visibility of an image created by an optical system from a wider range of angles. Probably the most popular applications of the first kind are milky light bulbs commonly used as light sources in our houses or flat panel displays with backlight illumination used in portable computers. The best known application of the second kind is an ordinary wall used as a screen for slide or film projector. Other examples of this type are diffusers in the view finding systems of some photographic and film cameras and in a variety of rear image projection systems (like microfiche readers or rear TV projection systems, for example). It is obvious, in this context, that demand for diffusers will increase with expansion of such systems.
