Abstract:

An illumination system is described which utilizes for display, portions of the visible spectrum which have been excluded from the ambient light. The resulting tinted illumination is matched in brightness to a standard white light by experimental subjects, and stimulus threshold measurements made as a function of display intensity for various stimulus and ambient spectra. Certain combinations are found to lower the threshold of detection, indicating enhanced stimulus brightness, whereas others are found to raise the threshold. A close relationship is found between experimental data and results predicted on the basis of previously published increment-threshold measurements.
