Technician and engineers who need to use colorimetry concepts and/or colorimeters
Basic knowledge in radiometry and spectroradiometry (quantity and units...) may be useful but a reminder is proposed at the begining of the training
- Understanding the fundamentals of color perception in human vision
- Mastering CIE colorimetry (XYZ, xy, L*a*b*, L*u*v*, u’v’... spaces and coordinates)
- Understanding color measurement principles and manipulating different kinds of colorimeters
- Discovering the notions of illuminants, correlated color temperature, etc.
Photometry and spectroradiometry.
Physiological fundamentals / Grassmann laws
CIE 1931 and 1964 color matching functions, XYZ space, xy chromatic coordinates, ...
