Paper Abstract

We adapt the tenets of Hering's opponent color theory to the processing of data obtained from a tristimulus colorimeter to independently determine the intensity and possible peak wavelength shift of a narrowband LED. This information may then be used for example in an optical feedback loop to maintain constant intensity and chromaticity for a light source consisting of two LEDs with different peak wavelengths. This approach is particularly useful for LED backlighting of LCD display panels using red, green, and blue LEDs, wherein a tristimulus colorimeter can be used to maintain primary chromaticities to within broadcast standard limits in real time.
