Abstract

Disclosed is the use of two color optical screens under a photoconductor which is part of a Ruticon system, which screens would be at a 900 angle. Envisioning a panchromatic photoconductor Ruticon, the horizontal screen can be magenta while the vertical screen is yellow, and in a preferred embodiment, green light can be modulated by the magenta screen while blue light will be modulated by the yellow screen. When a regular text is entered from a green light source, such as an appropriately filtered cathode ray tube, the cursor infor-mation is entered in both blue and green color. In view of the orientation of the magenta and yellow screens, the green input information will produce diffraction in the vertical direction while the blue input will produce diffraction in a horizontal direction when the Ruticon system is illuminated with read-out light. The two kinds of output can be separated in Fourier space by a specially constructed spatial and color filter combination. This filter could be a horizontal slit with an opening in the middle, the height and width of this opening being such that it would not let through the zeroth order information from both the yellow and magenta screens. On either side of the open screen the slit could be covered by a red filter, thus light diffracted by the yellow screen would be projected as red light to the read-out image plane.

Disclosed is the use of two color optical screens under a
photoconductor which is part of a Ruticon system, which
screens would be at a 900 angle. Envisioning a panchromatic
photoconductor Ruticon, the horizontal screen can be magenta
while the vertical screen is yellow, and in a preferred
embodiment, green light can be modulated by the magenta screen
while blue light will be modulated by the yellow screen. When
a regular text is entered from a green light source, such as an
appropriately filtered cathode ray tube, the cursor infor-
mation is entered in both blue and green color. In view of the
orientation of the magenta and yellow screens, the green input
information will produce diffraction in the vertical direction
while the blue input will produce diffraction in a horizontal
direction when the Ruticon system is illuminated with read-out
light. The two kinds of output can be separated in Fourier
space by a specially constructed spatial and color filter
combination. This filter could be a horizontal slit with an
opening in the middle, the height and width of this opening
being such that it would not let through the zeroth order
information from both the yellow and magenta screens. On
