Abstract

PURPOSE: To obtain a color display device with simple structure by repeatedly switching and changing wavelengths selectively transmitting or reflecting a Fabry-Perot type variable interference device.
CONSTITUTION: Light outputted from a light source 1 having light emitting spectrum in the whole visual area is transmitted through the Fabry-Perot type variable interference 3 acting as a variable color filter and diffused by a diffusing plate 4 in various directions. Voltage V to be impressed to the device 3 is supplied from a driving device 5. The device 3 utilizes interference, i.e. Fabry- Perot interference, based upon the repeated multiplex reflection of a light between opposed reflection films. Waveform dependency is generated in light transmissivity (reflection factor) by the interference, i.e. high transmissivity is generated in a specific wavelength and low transmissivity is generated in other wavelength. When an original color to be displayed by the circuit 5 is repeatedly switch and changed by a period faster than an observer's color discriminating limit time, a color having an optional hue and saturation can be obtained as the mixed color of the original color.
