Optimal Design of Camera Spectral Sensitivity Functions Based on Practical Filter Components
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2001.9.1.art00059  Published OnlineJanuary 2001

A new approach to obtain the optimal set of spectral sensitivity functions from among the complete combinations of the given practical filter components is presented. The criteria to select the optimal set are Vora and Trussell's μ-factor and the proposed UMG colorimetric quality factor. Comparative computation results show that μ-factor is not an appropriate metric for the optimal design of camera spectral sensitivity functions while UMG is able to pick out the optimal design successfully. Furthermore, the ultimate optimal set has been found by selecting the most optimal set in terms of μ-factor from the sub-optimal collection obtained with UMG. This hierarchical approach considers comprehensively the advantages of both quality factors. The candidates of the optimal set based on the given filter components are presented in the end of the paper.
