Course Details

Created with Sketch.


This three-day online short course covers what engineers in illumination optics need to know to quantify color, with special emphasis on LEDs. A basic working knowledge of optics is assumed. 

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • be familiar with the common color spaces, including CIE 1931 XYZ
  • intuitively grasp additive color mixing and LED binning
  • compute which LEDs to mix in which amounts to achieve desired color and brightness
  • use JMO’s open source Matlab® spectrum library (if you are a Matlab user)
  • understand the Color Rendering Index (CRI) and its limitations
  • use various color difference metrics to assess homogeneity

Attendees do not need LightTools/Lucidshape or other ray tracing software installed.
