Photometric Measurements

Photometric Measurements

 

quantitative determinations of the values of quantities characterizing optical radiation (light in the broad sense) or such optical properties of materials as transparency and reflectivity. Photometric measurements can be made with instruments that contain optical detectors. In the simplest cases in the visible light range, the human eye is used as a detector in evaluating photometric quantities.

Note: The subscript v of Φ indicates that Φv is a photometric quantity, in contrast to the radiometric quantity Φe(radiant flux); (t) time, (dΩ) infinitesimal solid angle through which the luminous flux is radiated, (dA) element of area of the surface, (θ) angle between the normal to the element of the surface and the direction in which the luminous flux is radiated (X) any photometric quantity

Observations in visible light during the early 1970s of a dozen eclipses of Io by teams of astronomers at Mauna Kea and Cerro Tololo observatories failed to detect any anomalous post-eclipse brightenings, but in 1971 photometric measurements conducted independently at Kitt Peak and Table Mountain observatories convincingly recorded a post-eclipse brightening that was more pronounced in the near-ultraviolet region of the spectrum at wavelengths of 350 to 400 nanometers than it was in visible light.
