Paper Abstract

The extra-brightness which characterizes fluorescent colors was adjusted to determine the luminance threshold dividing surface and fluorent colors for 7 zero-blackness reddish nuances (NCS notation) following three different psychophysical methods. Results are consistent with Evans' findings that threshold is always lower than surface-white luminance and decreases with chromaticness. When the same colors are observed over an achromatic Mondrian in a black viewing box fluorescence impression not only increases with the sample chromaticness, but also with the general illumination and the anchoring level of the Mondrian.
