Because the eye/brain system can be fully stimulated with these three monochromatic wavelengths, all pigment colors can be rendered by adjusting the relative intensities of the three prime-color phosphors. The key is to choose the components that maximize the visual system responses. For maximum effect, the three wavelengths must correspond to the peak spectral sensitivities of human vision, which are near 450 nm, 530 nm, and 610 nm. RE-70 lamps use a coat of conventional phosphors and a thin coat of narrow-emis- COLOR sion, rare-earth phosphors, producing CRIs of 70 to 78.
Fluorescent lamps also fall into three groups with regard to efficacy and color rendition: standard, deluxe, and rare-earth. Standard white lamps—both cool and warm kinds—produce high efficacy and poor color 48 rendition (color plates 14 and 16). Warm white fluorescent lamps have CRIs of 52 to 53; cool white fluorescent lamps have CRIs of 60 to 62. Deluxe white lamps produce improved color rendering with an approximately 25 percent sacrifice in lighting efficacy. The reduction in light quantity is often imperceptible, however, because of the vivid and accurate colors that improve contrast and portray tones that are grayed with standard lamps (color plates 15 and 17).
This same limitation applies when using color temperature notations for high-intensity discharge sources, including mercury vapor, metal halide, and high-pressure sodium lamps. COLOR RENDERING To remedy this limitation, color rendering expresses how colors appear under a given light source. For example, a shade of red will be rendered lighter or darker, more crimson or more orange, depending on the spectraldistribution properties of the light falling on it. The most accepted method to determine the color-rendering ability of a light source is a rating system called the Color Rendering Index (CRI).
