The Applied Spectral Knowledge Podcast is a forum for tips and insights on spectral sensing challenges. Ocean Insight experts cover topics ranging from the ins and outs of Raman to the science of color measurements.

Episode 3: Understanding Color Science

Ocean Insight Solutions Engineering Manager Matt Kremens joins colleagues James Gass and Ethan Montag to discuss color. Both Gass, our Calibration Lab Manager/Senior Application Engineer, and Montag, a Senior Scientist, have extensive experience in color measurements. Topics include the basics of color (1:20); emissive and reflective color (4:38), with examples of each (16:25); and color applications beyond aesthetic considerations (24:40).

Color occurs when light is perceived by the human eye. Color reflected from, or emitted by samples can be measured using basic color meters or more robust spectral devices for more detailed analysis.

To improve product quality and streamline processes, manufacturers are constantly seeking more effective methods of in-line color monitoring. In this application note, we discuss a versatile spectral system for non-contact color measurements.
