Understanding the CIE L*C*h Color Space

Similar to CIE L*a*b*, the CIE L*C*h color space enables users to evaluate the color attributes of samples, identify inconsistencies, and accurately express their findings to others in numerical terms. This color space is preferred by some industry professionals because its system correlates well with how the human eye perceives color. In this article, we provide an overview of how the CIE L*C*h color space is used to evaluate and control the color of samples. Learn more >




Understanding Standard Illuminants in Color Measurement

CIE, an organization considered to be the authority on the science of light and color, has defined several illuminants to represent certain light sources. The spectral data for these illuminants are stored in color measurement instruments to calculate the color of a sample as it would appear under each light. This article details the use of standard illuminants when measuring the color of samples. Learn more >
