Abstract
We analyze the optical transmission characteristics of prism sheet layers based on a geometrical approach. An analytic method for finding the radiant intensity profile of the light transmitted through a single prism sheet for an incident light with arbitrary radiant intensity profile is developed. It is shown that the output radiant intensity profile is the inner product of the newly defined partial transmission coefficient distribution of the prism sheet and the input radiant intensity profile. The developed analysis method for a single prism sheet is immediately generalized to analyze prism sheet layer being composed of several prism sheets.
