so like are you saying 100mW is 100X more bright than 1mW? because if so thats not accurate i don't think.It is as accurate as the CIE tables, which basically have one decimal point of accuracy. IE multiple database entries per each whole number wavelength.
However, apparently some people don't think the CIE tables are perfect enough on their own. So I'm open to input on additional factors to use in weighting.
Also, I'm using the mw as a simple multiplier. This may not be the proper approach.
I'm not actually saying that no - but that's how it's in there now.so like are you saying 100mW is 100X more bright than 1mW? because if so thats not accurate i don't think.
Yeah but that is starring at the dot, And IMO when I think of beam color I think of the beam it self, and thats where the 4 X's comes into playAlthough, the CIE table does provide a "lumens per watt" value for each wavelength.
This suggests that 100mW will produce 100x the LUMENS of 1mW.
So I suppose an easier to answer question is:
- Do we perceive 2 lumens as twice as bright as 1 lumen?
