Abstract

A colour-separating backlight can be made by using a surface-relief grating as an outcoupling structure on top of a lightguide. By combining such a structure with a birefringent layer, a polarised colour-separating backlight can be realised. We discuss experiments and simulations on a prototype of such backlight structures, as well as directions how to optimise them. First optimised samples of gratings made by laser-interference lithography show promising results.
