Professor Ronnier Luo
Abstract / Description: 

Colour science has been widely used in the imaging industry. This talk will introduce some new development areas of colour science. Among them, three areas related to imaging technology will be focused upon: LED lighting quality, CIE 2006 colorimetry, comprehensive colour appearance modelling. LED lightings has recently making great advances in the illumination industry. It has a unique feature on adjustability, capable of tuning its spectral for different applications. A tuneable LED system for image sensor applications such as white balance, calibration and characterisation will be introduced. It will be demonstrated and its performance will be reported.

Ronnier is a Global Expert Professor at Zhejiang University (China), and Professor of Colour and Imaging Science at Leeds University (UK). He is also the Vice-President of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE). He received his PhD in 1986 at the University of Bradford in the field of colour science. He has published over 500 scientific articles in the fields of colour science, imaging technology and LED illumination. He is a Fellow of the Society for Imaging Science and Technology, and the Society of Dyers and Colourists. He is also the Chief Editor of the Encyclopaedia of Colour Science and Technology published by Springer in December 2015.
