Metrics in Motion: Color Metrics


Metrics in Motion: Color Metrics

Presenter: Michael Royer, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

 June 6, 2019

After decades of debate and living with limitation, new color metrics for both color rendition and chromaticity have been standardized by the IES and/or CIE. While science has advanced, the practice has been slower to evolve. This webinar will look at recent developments and how they might change lighting practice over the next 10 years. It will demonstrate how all constituents in the lighting community can benefit from using metrics that fit the capabilities of today’s lighting technologies. Manufacturers can more effectively evaluate performance tradeoffs and communicate product performance, allowing differentiation with novel products; specifiers can reduce uncertainty and avoid unsightly consequences, and researchers can use improved methods to investigate fundamental lighting science challenges.

Michael Royer is a senior engineer at PNNL where he works on the DOE Solid-State Lighting program. He focuses on technology development issues, helping to improve product performance through research, testing, metric development, and engagement with various elements of the lighting industry. Michael is a member of the IES Color and Technical Procedures Committees and was chair of the IES Color Metrics Task Group. Prior to joining PNNL, Michael earned a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering from Penn State University, receiving the 2013 Taylor Technical Talent Award from the IES for his published work. Michael was named a future leader of lighting by LD+A Magazine in 2010 and has authored over 50 journal articles and government reports.
