Paper Abstract

We present the application of the method recommended by the Commission Internationale de L'Eclairage (CIE), in the determination of the correlated color temperature for the FEL type incandescent lamps, used in the Laboratorio de Espectrorradiometria de Lamparas of the Centro Nacional de Metrologia of Mexico (CENAM) as reference standards in the measurement and calibration services for this quantity. The knowledge of the correlated color temperature of a lamp allows it to be used as a particular CIE illuminant; and therefore permits its application in the visual evaluation of colors in several industrial processes. Also, we present the uncertainty estimation for the determination of the correlated color temperature of the evaluated FEL type incandescent lamps.
