  Reading on Color and Light, Part III: Composition of Color
The colored light may have a dominant wavelength or hue and the extent to which the hue dominates is known as saturation (or chroma).
This wavelength is referred to as the dominant wavelength and the color associtated with this dominant wavelength is called the hue.
As the dominant wavelength or hue is diluted with white light, the saturation decreases.

 Dominant wavelength - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For the white point indicated, the dominant wavelength for "x" is on the nearer perimeter, around 600 nm, while the complementary wavelength is opposite, around 485 nm.
In color science, the dominant wavelength and complementary wavelength are ways of describing non-spectral (polychromatic) light mixtures in terms of the spectral (monochromatic) light that evokes an identical perception of hue.
The wavelength of this pure spectral light that will evoke the same color perception as the given complicated light mixture is the dominant wavelength of that mixture.

 LED Forum: Re: Peak wavelength versus dominant wavelength
Dominant wavelength is the single wavelength that is perceived by the human eye, and is defined as the wavelength of monochromatic light that has the same apparent color as the light source.
Simply stated, if the color of a single wavelength ("X" nm) is indistinguishable from the color of a given LED, then that LED has a dominant wavelength of "X".
Peak wavelength is defined as the single wavelength where the radiometric emission spectrum of the light source reaches its maximum.

 F.A.Q.
Color perception is very complicated because it not only depends on the various physical properties of light such as the emission and optical properties of the light source, the wavelengths transmitted, etc. but also on things such as surrounding objects, the devices mechanical properties, the viewer’s eye response as well as their psychological state.
The dominant wavelength, specified in nanometers, is obtained from the color coordinates discussed above.
The peak wavelength is the wavelength at the maximum spectral intensity.

 WESSEL ET AL.: PACIFIC GEOID AND BATHYMETRY UNDULATIONS
An intriguing outcome of this study is that the dominant wavelengths are very nearly equivalent to the depths of various seismic discontinuities in the mantle.
Of the eight dominant wavelengths indicated in Figure 4a, six of them are within 5% of the depth of a distinct or suggested discontinuity.
The number of dominant wavelengths that are nearly equivalent to discontinuity depths argues against this correlation being a coincidence.

Dominant wavelength can be as low as the 550's of nm ("pure green" or "emerald green", yellowish green but less yellow than usual for LEDs) and as high as the low 630's (He-Ne laser red).
According to Cree the dominant wavelength is 466 nm.

wavelengths that are not absorbed pass through the glaze without significant optical scattering, allowing a clear view of the reflective substrate.
Furthermore, the rather sharply delineated transition from low reflectance at the absorbed wavelengths to very high reflectance at the wavelengths that are not strongly absorbed results in a high chroma, the intense color saturation that is the most distinctive appearance attribute of dark glazes that cannot be obtained, for example, with optically scattering tints.
This shift in hue of the PR66 glazes can also be seen in the chromaticity diagram of figure 2, which illustrates the shift in dominant wavelength (under CIE Illuminant C, simulating overcast daylight sky) from 506c (purple) to 630 nm (red) with increased colorant loading.

 Light is electromagnetic energy within a narrow range of frequencies capable of causing the sensation of vision
If more than one wavelength is reflected, the eye/brain performs a mixing of all light energy present and perceives a single color which is a result of the mixture.
Hue is the perceived color of visible light energy, expressed as violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, etc. This hue may be a result of a single wavelength of light energy or the dominant wavelength of multiple wavelengths of light energy.
Light of equal energy at all wavelengths appears to the eye/brain as white and is at zero saturation.

 MESA Spectrum
The sub window graphs wavelength in bars on the horizontal axis against relative amplitude (in negative decibels or a related unit) on the vertical axis, at the current position of the prediction cursor.
Note that the highest point on the line graph does not always correspond to the dominant cycle as shown in the spectrum contour’s green dominant-cycle line and in the standard prediction, due to the smoothing used in calculating the dominant cycle’s wavelength.
Bright colors far away from the dominant cycle line, or high secondary peaks or plateaus in the line graph, correspond to significant cyclic components of multiple wavelengths, which suggests that the dominant cycle may not be dominant for very long, and therefore may not be worth trying to trade on.

 Ostwald System
The Ostwald system creates a color space based on dominant wavelength, purity, and luminance, mapping the values of hue, saturation and brightness.
Establishing the values for these parameters is done with a disc colorimeter which mixes on a disk amounts of the pure spectral color at the dominant wavelength with white, and fl.
Thus the point in the Ostwald color space is represented by values C,W, and B to represent the percentages of the circle.

 NTIA Special Publication 98-35, Radio Astronomy Spectrum Planning Options, Chapter 1
These wavelengths have been measured in the laboratory, and radio astronomers can identify the radiating atoms in a star as hydrogen, helium, carbon, etc., by measuring the wavelengths at which they emit or absorb energy, and comparing these wavelengths with those measured in the laboratory.
Spectral lines (wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation) are known to be affected by the motion of their source, just like the sound of an emergency vehicle’s siren increases or decreases in pitch as it moves toward or away from the observer, respectively.
In the electromagnetic spectrum, long wavelengths correspond to the radio frequency spectrum, intermediate wavelengths to millimeter and infrared radiation, short wavelengths to visible and ultraviolet light, and extremely short wavelengths to x-rays and gamma rays.

 Chromaticity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chromaticity is the quality of a color as determined by its "purity" and dominant wavelength.
Another way to look at this is as the distance of the color from the axis in the L*ab color space.
In the case of a storage ring, a high degree of chromaticity can lead to instabilities in the beam's motion, which will result in large movements of the beam.
