Paper Abstract

Cut-off filters reject all the radiation below and transmit all the above a certain wavelength and vice versa. In this paper, we will study the design and fabrication of a short wave pass or a long wave pass dichroic mirrors for color separation and recombination from the R.G.B. color beam source. In the laser display system, color separation and recombination is very important. We designed the coating layers so that the best performance may be obtained from a 45 degree incident s-polarized light. The following fabrication specification is satisfied in our color separation/recombination of the Kr-Ar laser source. The first dichroic mirror for the blue color separation, maximized on reflectance and transmittance as R > 99% in the blue regions (400 approximately 490 nm) and T > 90% in the green and red region (510 approximately 700 nm). The second dichroic mirror for the color recombination maximized the reflectance and transmittance as R > 99% in the range of 510 approximately 700 nm and T > 90% in the blue color region. In the third dichroic mirror for which it used the color separation and recombination of the green and red simultaneously, maximized the reflectance and transmittance as R > 99% in the green region (510 approximately 560 nm) and T > 90% in the red region. These fabricated mirrors were applied in our laser display projection system. We obtained an excellent result.
