In this paper, we propose a polarization-selective color filter that can generate two different color informations simultaneously depending on the polarization direction. The proposed color filter is mainly composed of the etalon structure to generate the color by the structural resonance properties while the upper layer of the etalon is made of plasmonic nanogratings to promote polarization-dependent color properties. When the duty ratio of the silver nanogratings is fixed, the proposed color filter can maintain identical optical properties for orthogonal polarization, while the etalon structure of the proposed color filter can manipulate different color information depending on the cavity height for the horizontal polarization. Finally, we experimentally confirm that polarization-dependent security images can be generated using the proposed color filters with a fixed duty ratio of various nanograting arrays.
