It also has a high level of chromaticity and is the first choice in formulating durable colors.
For all eight SPDs, RGB light emitting diodes (LEDs) were mixed to create white light matching the chromaticity of a blackbody radiator at 3500 K as close as possible--actual measures at the observers' eyes were 3500 K [+ or -] 20 K, with [D.
The ranges of tolerable variations in color are plotted as ellipses on a CIE x/y chromaticity diagram, and can be categorized into 1-step (the human eye is unable to perceive any variation in color among devices), 2-step to 3-step (levels where color variations are difficult to perceive), and 4-step to 7-step (levels where color variations are noticeable to the human eye.
To display the results in the CIE 1931 colour space chromaticity diagram, the colour coordinates x and y can be calculated as follows:
The CIE L *, a *, and b * coordinates are characterized by three parameters: L * axis represents the lightness, and it varies from 100 (white) to 0 (black); a * and b * are the chromaticity indices; +a * is the red direction; -a * is green; +b * is yellow; and--6 * is blue.
Saturation can be defined as the ratio of the brightness of the monocolor light stimulus to that of the white light stimulus, which can be attributed to the distance between the chromaticity point of the color and the one of non-chromatic stimulus point in the chromaticity diagram (JING & HU, 2006).
