chromaticity diagram

n
(General Physics) physics a diagram in which values of two chromaticity coordinates are marked on a pair of rectangular axes, a point in the plane of these axes representing the chromaticity of any colour

The location points with values are in terms of the CIE 1931 chromaticity diagram, as shown in Figure 5.
Different volumes of cochineal dye (pH = 12, [5]) in 1 ml of AgN[O.sub.3] solution (10 mM, pH = 5.6) were analyzed with UV-Vis spectrometry, Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) chromaticity diagram, cyclic voltammetry (CV), scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), dynamic light scattering (DLS), and X-ray diffraction (XRD).
By using the CiE chromaticity diagram of emission spectra, it has been shown that this GdV[O.sub.4]:[Sm.sup.3+] nanophosphor material (chromaticity coordinates x = 0.596, y = 0.398) can be used for development of orange-reddish light emitting optical devices.
Figure 8(c) shows the CIE chromaticity diagram for 3 mol% Sm doped NaY[F.sub.4] micro/nanoplates under 399 nm excitation wavelength.

The most accurate metric to describe the color shift of a light source is #u'v'--that is, the change in u'v' coordinates on the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) 1976 (u'v') chromaticity diagram, which is the most visually uniform diagram of a light source's color.
The ranges of tolerable variations in color are plotted as ellipses on a CIE x/y chromaticity diagram, and can be categorized into 1-step (the human eye is unable to perceive any variation in color among devices), 2-step to 3-step (levels where color variations are difficult to perceive), and 4-step to 7-step (levels where color variations are noticeable to the human eye.
Finally, the measured colour coordinates of the high-power LEDs are depicted in the CIE 1931 colour space chromaticity diagram (Fig.
According to the definition, we calculate the normalized chromaticity coordinate x, y, z in the equation below, which can be pointed in the chromaticity diagram.
