Color Discrimination Experiments using Metameric ipRGC Stimuli
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2021.16.COLOR-307  Published OnlineJanuary 2021

In order to investigate the effect of ipRGC on color discrimination, it is necessary to reproduce two metameric light stimuli (we call these stimuli as metameric ipRGC stimuli) that have the same amount of cones and rods but different stimulus amount of ipRGC. However, it is difficult to independently control the amount of only ipRGC stimulation because the spectral sensitivity functions of the cones and rod overlap that of ipRGC in the wavelength band. So far, researchers have not addressed a comprehensive analysis of metameric ipRGC stimuli and color perception experiments for those stimuli. In this study, first, we proposed the calculation method of metameric ipRGC stimulus based on the orthogonal basis functions of human photoreceptors. Then, we clarified the controllable range of metameric ipRGC stimulus in the color gamut. Second, we conducted subjective evaluation experiments for investigating the discriminative colors due to metameric ipRGC stimuli. We showed the effects of ipRGC on color discrimination.
