Definition of chromaticity in English:



mass noun
  • The quality of colour, independent of brightness.

    • ‘As a result, the stability of the luminance and the chromaticity can be preserved against age deterioration.’
    • ‘If you look at an instrument's data sheet, you will see uncertainty values on the order of 0.002 in chromaticity (x, y) and 2% in luminance.’
    • ‘A previous study of pied flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca showed that the chromaticity of the characteristic blue eggs of this species was associated with male provisioning rate to resulting nestlings.’
    • ‘The specifications are commonly based on the 2 - D illuminance, luminance, intensity, chromaticity, and polarization distributions.’
    • ‘These include the halo effect of blue/yellow color separation, strong temperature and current dependence of chromaticity, and poor color rendering caused by the lack of green and red components.’
