The Colour Engineering Laboratory (CEL) carry out research in multiple disciplinary topics in relation to all aspects of the measurement of colour and light. We  are experts in the development of colour science-based models that relate the measured  physical data to describe colour and light with psychophysical data based on human  responses. Our research results have been applied in the fields of colour imaging technology and illumination  engineering. These strengths have been demonstrated by the development of  international standards such as the CIE color appearance model for the colour management for the imaging industry and the CIEDE2000 colour-difference equation for the surface  appearance industries. More recently, our work has included the derivation of  new models such as colour rendering, glare, uniformity, colour appearance, colour-difference for HDR and WCG applications. We are also closely collaborating  with leading companies to perform technology transfer.


  • 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.
