In the paper “A Practical Approach to Measuring and Modelling Paper Fluorescence for Improved Colorimetric Characterisation of Printing Processes” [1] it was noted that a limitation in applying this approach to modeling the effects of paper Fluorescent Whitener Additive (FWA) is the lack of affordable instruments capable of measuring the Ultra Violet (U.V.) content of the illuminant being used. Presented here is a novel indirect approach to estimating the illuminant U.V. using readily available instruments, that takes advantage of the same FWA model used in [1], thereby providing a source of illuminant U.V. characterization that is ideal for use with its FWA model.

  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, and a vibrant interactive papers session. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper presentation.
