5-1 Color vision model. Finally, the signals d 1, d 2, d 3 pass through linear systems with transfer functions H 1 ( ω x, ω y ) , H 2 ( ω x, ω y ) , H 3 ( ω x, ω y ) to produce output signals g 1, g 2, g 3 that provide the basis for perception of color by the brain. 5-1, the signals d 2 and d 3 are related to the chromaticity of a colored light while signal d 1 is proportional to its luminance. This model has been found to predict many color vision phenomena quite accurately, and also to satisfy the basic laws of colorimetry.

ISBNs: 0-471-37407-5 (Hardback); 0-471-22132-5 (Electronic) 3 PHOTOMETRY AND COLORIMETRY Chapter 2 dealt with human vision from a qualitative viewpoint in an attempt to establish models for monochrome and color vision. These models may be made quantitative by specifying measures of human light perception. Luminance measures are the subject of the science of photometry, while color measures are treated by the science of colorimetry. 1. PHOTOMETRY A source of radiative energy may be characterized by its spectral energy distribution C ( λ ) , which specifies the time rate of energy the source emits per unit wavelength interval.

This is the region of sharpest photopic vision. There are no rods or cones in the vicinity of the optic nerve, and hence the eye has a blind spot in this region. 2-3. Distribution of rods and cones on the retina. 2-4. Typical spectral absorption curves of pigments of the retina. In recent years, it has been determined experimentally that there are three basic types of cones in the retina (9, 10). These cones have different absorption characteristics as a function of wavelength with peak absorptions in the red, green, and blue regions of the optical spectrum.
