PHOTOPIC-SENSITIVITY CURVE

a graph of visual threshold as an act of wavelength under light-adapted conditions. The peak of the human lies at approximately 555 nm- this means that not as much energy is required for stimulant detection at this wavelength than at any other under daylight conditions.

PHOTOPIC-SENSITIVITY CURVE: "There should be a photoptic-sensitivity curve depicted with the graphing section of your report."
