This thesis is concerned with investigating the problems of measuring colour on a small scale of fibrous material in general as applied to stationary and moving surfaces. The objective was to take an existing spectral device and calibrate and develop to achieve spectral measurements of moving and stationary fibres. These measurements were then compared with known measured physical quantities or visual judgements. The system within defined parameters is capable of giving accurate spectral measurements for resolutions of down to 10 microns. Given the spectral scope of the system the data is reduced to that which the human observer views as lightness, and in this region the measurements are extremely accurate and reproducible.
