Our best resolution occurs with photopic vision, which can resolve features about 1 arcminute across.
Because of the much higher sensitivity to luminous efficiency of the scotopic vision compared to the photopic vision, both of them have maximum sensitivity from green-blue wavelength for red and blue perception, and the combined overall sensitivity ranges from 505 nm to 555 nm.
The visibility of each treatment to humans and insects was calculated by integrating the treatment radiance after multiplying it by the luminous efficiency spectra of the human eye (photopic vision) and of the rhodopsins of three-rhodopsin insects (represented by the sensitivity curve of Apis mellifera).
