为什么电视会发蓝光?
[ 2006-09-22 11:33 ]

关了灯看电视的时候,总觉得电视在发着蓝幽幽的光,照得屋子里都是淡淡的蓝色。这是为什么呢?让下面这篇文章来为你解答这个问题吧!

Color television pictures are produced by three different colors: red, green and blue. These combine to create a whitish light with a color temperature close to that of daylight (5500 to 6500 Kelvin).

Color temperature is a way of describing the relative amounts of the different colors that make up the light from a particular source. It can be thought of roughly as the temperature an object would need to be heated to give off light with that mixture of wavelengths. At low temperatures, low-energy colors such as red and yellow predominate; at higher temperatures the proportions of green or blue increase.

For example, standard tungsten light bulbs have a color temperature of 3200 K and are very yellow. Your eyes adjust to this light, making it appear whiter and more like daylight. At twilight or at night, anything with a higher color temperature than tungsten lights, such as a television, appears distinctly blue.

The same effect is seen if you look out of a room lit by tungsten light. The twilight appears particularly blue, and yet if you were to go outside and look at the same scene, the eye would no longer compare it to the lit room and the colors would appear more neutral.

The converse is also true. Viewed from outside, the windows of houses lit by tungsten light sources look distinctly yellow. Fluorescent sources generally have a spectrum much closer to that of daylight and don't produce the same effect.

Kelvin: 开氏温标

tungsten: 钨

spectrum: 光、光谱
