Course content
1) Introduction - Defining color, the physical stimulus, perceiving color and describing color. 2) Human color vision - Structure and function of the eye. The mechanism of vision and color vision deficiencies. 3) Color order systems - Lambert, Runge, Munsell, Ostwald, NCS color space and Pantone order system. 4) Basic Colorimetry I - Nature of light. CIE light sources and illuminants. Color measurement. Reflectance spectro-photometers and colorimeters. On-line and off-line systems. Colorimetry of color-changeable materials. 5) Basic Colorimetry II - The 1931 CIE XYZ system, UCS - uniform color scale and chromacity diagrams. 6) Color quality control I - LAB spaces. Color-difference dE*, dE DCI95 and dE DIN6176. 7) Color quality control II - Color-difference formulae - CMC, CIE 1994 and CIE 2000, Shade sorting - 555 and cluster systems. 8) Color quality control III - Indices - Whiteness, Yellowness, Gray scales, Uniformity measurement. 9) Color appearance - Metamerism. Color constancy and chromatic adaptation CIE CAT00. Color appearance models - CIECAM02, etc. 10) Computer match prediction I - Absorption and scattering of light. Kubelka-Munk function. Spectrophotometric curve matching. Colorimetric matching. 11) Computer match prediction II - Database of dyes preparation. Recipe correction. Recipe formulation of fiber blends. 12) Color management - color gamut, softcopy and hardcopy, ICC profiles. Labs: 1. Calibration, precision and accuracy - colorimeters and spectrophotometers 2. Measurement of non-fluorescent materials, samples preparation and measuring methods 3. Whiteness and fluorescent materials measurement 4. Dye set preparation and measurement 5. Computer match prediction - recipe calculation and correction 6. Monitor calibration, ICC profiles
