symbol CIE Divisions

Division 1: Vision and Colour

GB Representative: Dr Mike Pointer

To study visual responses to light and to establish standards of response functions, models and procedures of specification relevant to photometry, colorimetry, colour rendering, visual performance and visual assessment of light and lighting.

Division 2: Measurement of Light and Radiation

GB Representative: Teresa Goodman

To study standard procedures for the evaluation of UV visib1e and infrared radiation, global radiation, the optical properties of materials and luminaires and the optical properties and performance of physical detectors and other devices required for their evaluation.

Division 3: Interior Environment and Lighting Design

GB Representative: John Mardaljevic

To study and evaluate visual factors which influence the satisfaction of the occupant of a building with their environment, and their interaction with thermal and acoustical aspects, and to provide guidance on relevant design techniques, including the relevant calculations for the interior lighting of buildings, incorporating their findings and those of other CIE committees into lighting guides for interiors in general, for particular types of interiors and for specific problems in interior lighting practice.

Division 4: Lighting and Signalling for Transport

GB Representative: Nigel Pollard

To study lighting and visual signalling and information requirements of transport and traffic; such as road and vehicle lighting delineation, signing and signalling for all types of public roads and all kinds of users and vehicles, and visual aids for modes other than road transport.

Division 5: Exterior Lighting and Other Applications

GB Representative: Dr Steve Fotios

To study procedures and prepare guides for the design of lighting for exterior working areas, security lighting, floodlighting, pedestrian and other areas without motorised traffic, areas for sports and recreation and mine lighting.

Division 6: Photobiology and Photochemistry

GB Representative: Dr John O’Hagan

To study the effects of optical radiation on biological and photochemical systems (exclusive of vision).

Division 8: Image Technology

GB Representative: Dr Mike Pointer

To study procedures and prepare guides and standards for the optical, visual and metrological aspects of the communication, processing, and reproduction of images, using all types of analogue and digital imaging devices, storage media and imaging media.
