Background isolation conditions for spectral sensitivity measurements. (a) The spectral irradiance provided under the various background isolation conditions. Background conditions: long-wavelength isolation (LW, red), control (green), Dim short wavelength (Dim SW, cyan) and short-wavelength isolation (SW, blue). (b) The quantum catches of the six possible cone mechanisms under each condition. Cone pigment: SWS1 (black), SWS2b (violet), SWS2a (blue), RH2b (green), RH2a (orange) and LWS (red). Cone quantum catches were calculated while setting the A2% of cones to 50 for the design of the background conditions.
