Glossary is usually defined as an alphabetical list of technical terms in some specialized field of knowledge. This knowledge base glossary provides a collection of knowledge base documents that define many technical terms. These terms are arranged alphabetically, but you can quickly jump to a specific term by selecting its first letter from the index of the knowledge base glossary below.

Laboratory correction
The existing recipe is altered and saved again. Every additional laboratory correction reduces the differences to the color sample.

Level
In formulation software, level refers to a particular type of data stored in a colorant record. Level data includes the volumetric concentration of colorant in the mixture, and the optical data calculated for that volume concentration. When calculating optical constants, the program always works with the colorant concentration expressed as a volume percent. In most cases, weight concentrations are provided on the Mixtures tab. These are converted to the equivalent volume percent based on the formula used, and the ingredient densities provided. The volumetric concentration is displayed on the Level tab. Because the volume concentration is usually calculated, it is considered theoretical data.

Light
Electromagnetic radiation that a human detects through visual sensations that arise from the stimulation of the retina of the eye. This portion of the electro-magnetic spectrum includes wavelengths from about 380nm – 770nm. It is incorrect to refer to electromagnetic radiation outside of this range (i.e., ultra-violet wavelengths) as ‘light’, since the human observer does not detect it visually. Adjective meaning high reflectance, transmittance, or level of illumination as contrasted to dark or low level of intensity.

Light source
An object that emits radiant energy (light) to which the human eye is sensitive. The emission of a light source can be described by the relative amount of energy emitted at each wavelength in the visible spectrum. This numeric description is an Illuminant. The light source can also be described in terms of its color temperature, expressed in Kelvin. For example, there are several daylight sources, such as D5000 and D6500 that have different color temperatures.
