Abstract

The CMY colour camera is different from the RGB counterpart where the subtractive colours cyan, magenta and yellow are used. The CMY camera performs better than an RGB camera in low light conditions. However, conventional CMY colour filter technology made of pigments and dyes are limited in performance for next generation image sensors with submicron pixel sizes. This is because the conventional CMY filters cannot be fabricated in nanoscale as they use their absorption properties to subtract colours. This paper presents a CMOS compatible nanoscale thick CMY colour mosaic made of Al-TiO2-Al nanorods forming a total number of 0.82 million colour filter pixels with each filter pixel size of 4.4..
