Abstract

This study achieves real-color displays using a randomizing effect based on the concept of “natural light.” At present, most displays emit linearly polarized light, which causes essential blackout and color degradation problems when the displays are viewed through polarizers such as sunglasses. To address this, complex polarization-control technologies are added to existing displays, but the problems remain unresolved. In contrast, this study randomizes the polarization using a polymer film called a random depolarization film (RDF) that is doped with specific birefringent crystal particles. The RDF placed on a display reproduces colors that are very close to the natural colors seen in reality without the need for complex polarization technologies. We believe that it has the potential to change the approach to color-reproducing technology for displays.
