EL refers to a type of light-emiting device that can cover a large area. When electricity is applied, an EL panel glows over its entire surface.

EL panels are often used in mobile phones as backlights for LCD displays. EL backlights are characterized by smooth, even light across the display, and often greater brightness than LED backlights. Most EL backlights are blue or aqua in color.
