Light Spectra for the Microsoft Surface 3    

The Backlights for LCD displays are white LEDs, which are made by using a Blue LED together with tuned Red and Green phosphors to optimally transform a fraction of the light for the chosen Red and Green primaries. The spectrum of an LCD display is just the spectrum of its white LED Backlight filtered through the individual Red, Green and Blue sub-pixel filters within the LCD panel, resulting in broad rolling spectra for LCDs.

The Figure shows the individual Red, Green, and Blue Primaries in addition to White, which is the sum of all three.
