2 The first essential for accurate colour judgement is constancy of the illumination. Contrary to popular opinion, natural light is a poor illuminant for colour-matching purposes, for it continuously changes according to the season, the time of day and the weather. The spectral composition of daylight may not even be the same in two samples of light entering simultaneously through windows on opposite sides of a room. g. hop grading, where at one time the grading was deferred annually until the crop samples could be valued under 'a natural cold north light, with the sky unobstructed by heavy clouds or fog'.
2). )(1) long been the aim of lamp makers to produce a lamp in which the spectral power distribution followed closely to that of the human eye response curve. The technical difficulties in doing this are great, but a number of practical Colour properties of light sources 41 light-sources have been developed which, while having spectral power distribution envelopes of quite different contours to that of solar light, give satisfactory performance for many applications. Incidentally, lamp manufacturers publish such curves for their lamps, but it takes much expertise to interpret them and visualize the colour performance which may be associated with each shape of curve.
7 Transmitted-light devices. These devices employ the principle of total internal reflection which results in the effect of piping of light' through solid rods of transparent material such as glass or clear plastic. 8). g. in the examination of biological samples. 05 mm diameter) the 'piping effect' still takes place. Bundles of such glass fibres may be used to conduct the light in place of a solid rod, with the advantage of the bundle being flexible. Such a 'fibre optic' may be used to direct light to the bottom of deep narrow apertures, round corners, or into enclosed spaces with small entries.
