This work demonstrates a method to reduce the intensity of the undesirable wavelengths of blue (B-) and green (G-) ambient lights to expand the color gamut of reflective liquid crystal displays (LCDs) by an embedded etalon. The built-in reflector of the reflective LCDs is replaced by the blue-green overlapping wavelengths filtering etalon, which is used to reduce the intensity of undesirable B- and G-primaries, thereby decreasing the color cross talk of B- and G-color filters. After etalon adoption, the color gamut can be expanded from 105.96% to 121.81% of National Television System Committee (NTSC) in International Commission on Illumination (CIE) 1976 color space. Compared with the color gamut of the display without the blue-green overlapping wavelength etalon, the maximum expansion of color gamut is ∼15.85%. Moreover, the balance between light loss and color gamut expansion should be taken into consideration.
