Paper Abstract

The quantitative evaluation of color perceptional distinction performance is one of main problems in colorimetry. The standard colorimetric systems have essential disadvantages and not allow doing the numerical estimation of some color perception effects. At the same time, preceding experiments testify of the light sources performance significant affects to results of color measuring. Non-conventional laser usage for estimation of color perception represents great interest in this case. The known non-linear color perception effects, such as Bezold-Brucke and Bezold-Abney effects, explored experimentally at the beginning of the last century, have not found an explanation within the traditional colorimetry limits. The data on light source spectral distribution is absent in the literature. We are representing the mathematical model of this effects based on the original non-linear transformation of color intensities system. This way allows to receive precise quantitative assessments using the monochromatic light sources. The cases of using of two and three monochromatic light sources have been researched. The basic theoretical relies are experimentally checked; HeNe (λ=633 nm) and HeCd (λ=440 nm) lasers were used as light sources. The obtained results allow to improve the series of the important standings at the color perception theory as a whole.
