chromaticity diagram

[‚krō·mə′tis·əd·ē dī·ə‚gram]
(optics)
A triangular graph for specifying colors, whose ordinate is the y chromaticity coordinate and whose abscissa is the x chromaticity coordinate; the apexes of the triangle represent primary colors. Also known as chromatic diagram.

If we want the color temperature of the mixed light to be 4000 K, we must calculate the weight concentration of Y-561 phosphor from the coordinates of the cross point of the black locus at 4000 K and a line connecting the location points of the blue LED and phosphor emission spectra on the CIE chromaticity diagram, as shown in Figure 13.

To achieve this goal we "translated" the results obtained by other authors' from the nomenclature corresponding to the specific atlas employed to a CIE "common language": the language of the CIE L*u*v* space and its chromaticity diagram (CIE u'v').
On a chromaticity diagram, the straight line connecting the extreme spectral colors red and violet) is known as the line of purples (or purple boundarylessness); it represents one limit of human color perception (http://en.wikipedia.ora/wiki/Purple).
The search was on for a white backlight lamp having maximum luminance and color coordinates of x = 0.31 [+ or -] 0.02 and y = 0.35 [+ or -] 0.02 per the C.I.E 1931 Chromaticity Diagram.
Thresholds that define red-green (RG) and blue-yellow (BY) sensitivity, within the neutral isochromatic zone, are plotted as x, y chromaticity co-ordinates in the CIE chromaticity diagram (1931).
