Colors in Dim Illumination and Candlelight
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2007.15.1.art00059  Published OnlineJanuary 2007

A variety of papers have studied color at low-light levels in different illuminants. This paper reviews these results and adds new experiments using long-wave-rich illumination, appropriate for rod and long-wave cone interactions. The experimental results agree with and extend previous results. Since these experiments use illuminates more appropriate for rod-cone interactions they measure a much greater range of colors. They also provide new data that clarifies how the rod information interacts with the cone-cone color channels. Color appearances indicate rods share M-and S-color channels.
