Survey of mesopic research work

The TC 1-58 is currently outlining the existing and forthcoming works in the mesopic field in order to collect and compare data and to form a basis for a future standard on mesopic photometry. We would be grateful if you could fill in the survey.


CIE Expert Symposium ‘Vision and Lighting in Mesopic Conditions ‘05'

CIE Expert Symposium 'Vision and Lighting in Mesopic Conditions ‘05'. was held in León Spain on May 21, 2005. The Symposium was held along the CIE Mid-Term Meeting and International Lighting Congress.

The aim of the Symposium was to bring together people involved and interested in the mesopic lighting research. The task of the Symposium was to foster the exchange of ideas and to inform illuminating engineers of the new methods of evaluating mesopic light levels.

The authors and titles of their presentations are listed below with links to the presentations given by the authors:
