ColorWiki – Delta E: The Color Difference

The more modern color difference formulae use this ellipsoid shape and allow you, the user, to vary several different parameters to tune the numbers to match visual comparisons. CMC l:c. In 1984 the CMC (Colour Measurement Committee of the Society of Dyes and Colourists of Great Britain) developed and adopted an equation based on LCH numbers.

Emissive Color Measurement of LEDs – Ocean Optics

Accurate measurement of emissive color is an important application of spectroscopy. LED manufacturers use color measurement for binning their products (i.e., sorting by performance and other criteria) to ensure product consistency and quality. Display manufacturers use emissive color measurements to calibrate the color of display screens.

ASTM Industrial Methods for Color Measurement – AN 1035.00
1. Color Scale
2. CIE Illuminant
3. CIE Standard Observer
4. Instrument Geometry and mode
5. Sample Preparation
6. Sample Presentation

These parameters are based on the CIE system of tristimulus color measurement and are applied world-wide to measure the color of any product or material.

Pantone CAPSURE Color Measurement Tools

A complete color-matching solution. Capture color inspiration from any surface, material, or fabric – even small, patterned, multi-colored textures and textiles – and match it quickly and accurately to a Pantone Color.

Pantone Color Systems Explained
We have two color systems. Which Pantone Colors are right for you?

Hunter L, a, b Color Scale
The Hunter L, a, b color scale evolved during the 1950s and 1960s. At that time, many of the scientists involved with color measurement were working on uniform color scales.

Colorimetry – The Science of Color in Non-Technical Terms
Colorimetry is the science of defining and measuring colors in a way that will correlate to how an “average” person will see the color. Precisely defining and measuring colors is needed in chemistry, color printing, paint manufacturing, textile manufacturing and advertising.

Color temperature – Wikipedia
The color temperature of the electromagnetic radiation emitted from an ideal black body is defined as its surface temperature in kelvins, or alternatively in mireds (micro-reciprocal kelvins).
