Radiometry & photometry: The dark art of light metrology

The science of measuring the amount, spectral and spatial distribution of light emitted by a source is generally poorly understood. Few university-level physics or engineering syllabuses review the principles of optical radiation measurement, let alone the practicalities. This is despite our interacting with light almost constantly, both in nature and in our work and leisure activities. This white paper reviews the fundamental principles of light metrology.
