The light guide plate in LCD backlight has a large number of surfaces that make patterns. They make simulation time long in the non-sequential Monte Carlo ray tracing simulation. We present an efficient way to handle the printed pattern in light guide plate; we used the area ratio function of pattern as a probability function of meeting at the pattern surface. This reduced the calculation loops of simulation,and made the great improvement of simulation speed.We developed a simulation tool to apply our new algorithm,and compared the simulation result of our approximate ray tracing method with that of real tracing,and also compared the simulation speed of ours with that of commercial one.
