achromatic stimulus

stimulus that, under the prevailing conditions of adaptation, gives rise to an achromatic perceived colour

NOTE In the colorimetry of object colours, the colour stimulus produced by the perfect reflecting or transmitting diffuser is usually considered to be an achromatic stimulus for all illuminants, except for those whose light sources appear to be highly chromatic.
