Small-Area Black Luminance Measurements on White Screen Using Replica Masks

Abstract

Luminance measurements of small areas of black pixels on white-screen backgrounds are often used as metrics in display measurements, such as character-stroke contrasts or deep modulation transfer functions. Serious errors may be made in measurements and subsequent ergonomic conclusions if glare contributions of the measurement are not considered. We show a simple method for accounting for glare corruption of luminance measurements by using replica masks.
