Metamerism and sensor metameric failure
Nov 10, 2010

Hi,

I read some recent discussion on metamerism and sensor metameric failure on this forum and thought it would be an opportunity to further my own education on this topic, since the Wikipedia link itself is devoid of any figures for an illustration ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metamerism_%28color%29 ).

My understanding of this topic is shown in the graphic below. It's been commented that there is a fundamental difference between the two phenomena - metamerism and metameric failure. However, I tend to believe that the underlying principle is the same.

For more information on the geometry of this illustration please see the following link:

Comments welcomed.
