The Color Engineering Laboratory (CEL) is an inter-disciplinary research group that covers disciplines including physics, mathematics, psychology and computing. The members of the group conduct research that includes all aspects of the measurement of color and light. We are experts in the development of color science-based models that relate the measured physical data that describe color and light with psychophysical data based on human responses. Our academic strengths are in the fields of color imaging technology and illumination engineering. These strengths have been demonstrated by the development of international standards such as the CIECAM02 color appearance model for the imaging industry and the CIEDE2000 color-difference equation the surface appearance industries. More recently, our work has included the derivation of new models for colour rendering, glare, uniformity, colour appearance and colour-difference for lighting applications. We are also closely collaborating with leading international companies including Philips, Hewlett Packard, Opple, VeriVide and LG.

More about us

The Color Engineering Laboratory was established in September 2012 by Prof. Ming Luo (Ronnier), a Global Expert Professor at the College of Optical Science and Engineering, Zhejiang University. It has 4 laboratories: Optical Metrology, LED Applications, Color Image Quality and Appearance Technology. Currently; there are 23 members including 4 staff, 3 advisors and 16 students.

Our mission is:

  • to educate high quality researchers and engineers in color science, imaging science and illumination engineering,
  • to perform innovative research in the above fields,
  • to transfer smart technology to industry, and
  • to be involved with the development of national and international standards.
