The properties of light that stimulate the eye and build our visual perception also guide the design of illuminated devices. Thanks to well-established scientific methods, we can quantify the human eye’s response to light in a mathematical context to enable machines to perform automated optical metrology. Light measurement systems such as imaging photometers and colorimeters use CIE-matched optical filters and scientific-grade imaging sensors to apply these methods, capturing meaningful data that guide human-centric design and evaluation of many of today’s devices. Using photometric technology, manufacturers can leverage the standard principles of light and color measurement in design and production to best assess the visual quality of displays, backlit components, and light sources — as they are actually seen and experienced by users. This provides manufacturers with the means to achieve objective product quality.

Learn live from our experts about this topic that draws together scientific principles of photonics, human visual response, and metrology. Organized by Photonics Media (photonics.com) and presented by Jessy Hosken, Product Engineer at Radiant Vision Systems, this 45-minute webinar introduces the basic principles and applications of light and color measurement. Jessy will discuss the foundations of photometry and colorimetry, and introduce photometric technologies that leverage these principles to accurately quantify the human visual response to guide quality in light and display products.

Topics include:

  • How the human eye responds to light and color.
  • Quantifying color based on CIE tristimulus curves.
  • Technology designed to replicate human visual response.
  • Optical metrology systems and benefits of imaging for light measurement.
