Light exposure of colorants with light of different spectral characteristics was investigated. Typical spectra of light sources used in accelerated light fading, filtered xenon arc and cool white fluorescence were area-normalized to the same lux level or the same total energy. The light
absorbed by each colour channel was compared for the two cases. Using cool white fluorescene illumination at same lux level is about 50-65% as efficent as using indoor filtered xenon arc. The efficiency depends on the colour channel and is not very dependent on the exact dye spectrum and not
very sensitive to the exact spectral composition of the light source. Comparisons with experimental data confirmed that the degradation of the colorant was dependent on the spectral power distribution of the light source and the absorption characteristics of colorants. For the cases where
the experimental fading light source varies from the assumed display condition, the authors propose an approximation, that converts the exposure from one light source to another per colour channel. Two light sources are roughly equivalent as long as the area normalised spectra per colour channel
are the same.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
