You could try:

  ScalarMap cmap = new ScalarMap(Temp, Display.RGB);
  LabeledColorWidget lcw = new LabeledColorWidget(cmap);

Then add(lcw) to your GUI somewhere and experiment with
color lookup tables that will give you a brighter image.
Or you could try computing a color table:

  ColorControl control = (ColorControl) cmap.getControl();
  float[][] table = new float[3][256];
  for (int j=0; j<256; j++) {
    table[0][j] = ... // j-th red
    table[1][j] = ... // j-th green
    table[2][j] = ... // j-th blue

Note also that with Java3D colors can be a bit less bright,
because of the shading algorithm.
