Abstract

Color shift induced by background color in a nematic liquid crystal display is investigated experimentally. A liquid crystal cell shows a positive dielectric anisotropy and is operated in a tunable birefringence mode. Munsell color chips 5R-, 5G-, 5B-5/6, and N-5 are used as background color. Colorimetric data are shown in the 1976 CIE (L*, a*, b*) color scale. A predict equation based on induction theory is found to apply with fair success to the observations of each of the five observers.
