Paper Abstract

Many electronic displays, including large-screen flight simulator displays, have maximum luminances of about 10 photopic candelas per square meter (10 photopic nits). Most references (for example, Hood & Finkelstein, 19862, p.5-3) place this luminance in the region of overlap between photopic and mesopic vision.
