Image Number 15 for United States Patent #7515327.
A display is described, wherein the display includes surfaces arranged at a non-zero angle to one another. A least one of the surfaces may include an interferometric modulator. Compensation for color shift can be provided through the use of two or three surfaces arranged at an angle to one another, the surfaces having similar interferometric modulators. Methods of making such a display are also described. A brighter display can be provided through the use of three surfaces arranged orthogonally to one another, where each of the surfaces has an interferometric modulator which reflects a different color of light. Either additive or subtractive methods can be used to generate light of a particular color.
