Paper Abstract

In order to improve the color saturation of reflective Fabry-Perot(FP) color filter, we proposed a reflective color filter incorporating FP resonator with a dielectric grating. The FP resonator consists of high reflection metal film, dielectric film and semi-transparent metal film. The dielectric grating, above the semi-transparent metal film, can reduce the reflection from the semi-transparent film in which case high saturation will be achieved. By using Finite Difference Time Domain(FDTD) method, the reflection spectra characteristic is analyzed as a function of duty cycle, period, refractive index and thickness of the dielectric grating. Based on the simulation results, a high performance color filter is proposed by optimizing the structural parameters. The full width at half-maximum (FWHM) reflection spectrum of the filters are reduced from 100 nm to 70 nm and the peak reflection efficiency of the filters are about 90%. The overlap of the tricolor output spectra decreases effectively, which will increase the color saturation of the color filter.
