Effect of optical aberrations on the color appearance of small defocused lights
Gupta, Preeti, Guo, Huanqing, Atchison, David A., & Zele, Andrew J. (2010) Effect of optical aberrations on the color appearance of small defocused lights. Journal of the Optical Society of America A: Optics, Image Science & Vision, 27(5), pp. 960-967.
We investigated influences of optics and surround area on color appearance of defocused, small narrow band photopic lights (1’ arc diameter, λmax 510 - 628 nm) centered within a black annulus and surrounded by a white field. Participants included seven normal trichromats with L- or M-cone biased ratios. We controlled chromatic aberration with elements of a Powell achromatizing lens and corrected higher-order aberrations with an adaptive-optics system. Longitudinal chromatic aberrations, but not monochromatic aberrations, are involved in changing appearance of small lights with defocus. Surround field structure is important because color changes were not observed when lights were presented on a uniform white surround.
