Background Historical overview
Different approaches that have been taken to establishing a system of mesopic photometry
Differences between physical photometry and visual photometry
Brightness photometry versus visual performance approaches

Janos Schanda


09:10 - 10:00
CIE system Basis for the system
Detailed description of the system
Limitations of use
Actions needed by CIE to get the mesopic system implemented in outdoor lighting

Liisa Halonen


10:00 - 10:50
Coffeebreak     10:50 - 11:10
CIE supplementary system Basis for CIE supplementary system of photometry (for brightness evaluations)
Detailed description of the system
Possible application areas

Ken Sagawa


11:10 - 12:00
Measurement Physical photometry and how the CIE system for mesopic photometry fits into the broader CIE system for physical photometry
Units of measurement for mesopic photometry
Specification of product performance
Factors that need to be taken into consideration when making measurements under the mesopic system
How to calculate mesopic luminance and illuminance
Possible measurement approaches / instrumentation
How the system might be introduced into current specifications e.g. for road lighting
Open measurement questions that must be answered

Teresa Goodman


12:00 - 13:00
Lunchbreak     13:00 - 14:00
Introduction to practical application Review of potential application areas (road lighting, emergency escape lighting, …)
What is really important for these applications (luminance, illuminance, colour appearance, …)?
Review of current specification standards used in these areas (worldwide)
Review of current research into the role of SPD in street lighting

Peter Bodrogi


14:00 - 14:50
Issues for practical application Opportunities and limits of a mesopic photometry
What is the influence of the spectrum of currently used lamp types on peripheral recognition?
Is there an optimal spectral distribution for street lighting?
What are the typical tasks of a driver that must be supported?
When we have optimized the spectrum for the driver task, what disadvantages will the pedestrian have?

Stephan Völker
