colour.excitation_purity#

colour.excitation_purity(xy: ArrayLike, xy_n: ArrayLike, cmfs: Optional[MultiSpectralDistributions] = None) FloatingOrNDArray[source]#

Return the excitation purity \(P_e\) for given colour stimulus \(xy\).

Parameters:
  • xy (ArrayLike) – Colour stimulus CIE xy chromaticity coordinates.

  • xy_n (ArrayLike) – Achromatic stimulus CIE xy chromaticity coordinates.

  • cmfs (Optional[MultiSpectralDistributions]) – Standard observer colour matching functions, default to the CIE 1931 2 Degree Standard Observer.

Returns:

Excitation purity \(P_e\).

Return type:

np.floating or numpy.ndarray
