chromaticity 

Colour quality of a colour stimulus definable by its chromaticity coordinates, or by its dominant (or complementary) wavelength and its purity taken together (CIE). See saturation; dominant wavelength.

Chromaticity coordinates a * and b * over the aging period are shown in Figs.
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.
Figures 1, 2 and 3 show CIE Lab chromaticity diagrams for standard (object), recorded and edited photographs.
Another measure of colour quality --a gamut area index (GAI) [7], is applicable for predicting how well one can discriminate differences in chromaticity.
CIELAB color space uses a natural logarithmic function instead of a cube root function in the CIE chromaticity equations and is mainly useful for the image segmentation of the three dimensional images (Fairchild, 1998).
The chromaticity (quality of color) of the material under daylight viewing conditions is generally a secondary concern, Molino said.
The excellent chromaticity and the finely brushed stainless-steel surface highlight the character of the kitchen as a living area that, more and more, is regaining its classical significance as the centre of the house and apartment.
Pulse-width modulation can be readily achieved in vehicle lighting systems and has an advantage over filament based sources in that dimming LEDs in this way does not appreciably shift the chromaticity or color appearance, whereas dimming filament sources will result in increased relative long-wavelength output and a yellower color appearance.
Software features include timeline recording, data smoothing, color measurement, chromaticity, color temperature, external triggered pulsed-light capturing and other data handling functions.
