Adam Mayer dissected an old LCD display into its constituent layers. He writes:
These are seven layers of a backlight from an old laptop LCD. The amount of optical engineering required to produce a nice, even glow from an edge-lit panel is impressive.
The layers include horizontal and vertical polarizing films, a diffusion screen for the backlight, and anti-reflex glass.
