The aims of this research are to develop an LED based high quality CIE-illuminant simulator, to investigate different visual methods for evaluating the colour rendering properties of different light sources, to test the current CIE colour rendering index and to propose a new index based on an analysis of the visual results. To achieve these aims, a spectrally tunable LED cluster was constructed and this device proved to be both flexible and accurate for CIE-illuminant simulation. In addition, the colour rendering properties of several different light sources have been investigated from various aspects, i.e. colour appearance, colour fidelity, colour preference and colour harmony.
