Due to the nonlinear transform from spectral reflectance to CIELAB values, the solution obtained by minimizing reflectance error in traditional spectral characterization methods will not be optimal when evaluated by colorimetric error. We propose a reflectance estimation method with consideration of perceptual color space. It combines two approaches, i.e., colorimetric-based spectral calculation and weighted spectral calculation. The experimental results show that the proposed method performs better than previous methods in terms of color difference with very slight degradation in spectral accuracy.
