Properties of Light Sources under Mesopic Vision
The mesopic vision theory is used to study illumination properties of series of light sources, through the test of luminous spectrum and derivation based on the MOVE model, the results show that spectral luminous efficiency function Vmes(λ) is between traditional V(λ) and V′(λ) when the background brightness under mesopic vision condition, and the function of Vmes(λ) is changed with the different of light sources and background brightness. Based on human visual perception, the mesopic vision equivalent brightness can be calculated, which of HPS is lower than test brightness corrected by V(λ), but white LEDs and FL show opposite phenomena, and the different value between mesopic and photopic brightness presents reduce trend with rising of background brightness.
