The mode orthogonality fundamentally influences the scattering spectra of multi-resonance systems, such as plasmonic color filters. We show that planar arrays of silver nanostructures with dual localized surface plasmon resonances and the right mode orthogonality can function as transmissive RGB color filters with peak transmittances higher than 70%, and color gamut areas larger than 90% of the sRGB space. These are the brightest and most saturated of all designs proposed thus far. We present the Pareto frontier from designs with more than 80% peak transmittance, to designs that achieve a color gamut larger than 120% of the sRGB space.
