This second edition of an Artech House classic title describes in detail the relationship between radiometry and photometry. It covers information needed to solve problems in radiation transfer and detection, detectors, measuring instruments, and concepts in colorimetry.
This revised second edition presents an updated treatment of modern radiometry and photometry, including brand new sections on applications and developments in light sources and scientific instruments for measuring radiation and light. Engineers are also provided with an exciting new chapter on the use of computerized optical ray tracing for “virtual” experiments on optical systems.
Fundamental Concepts of Radiometry; Fundamental Concepts of Photometry; Blackbodies and Other Sources; Source/Receiver Flux Transfer Calculations; The Invariance of Radiance and the Limits of Optical Concentration; Optical Properties of Materials; The Detection of Radiation; Optical Systems; Radiometers and Photometers; Metric Primer and Additional Radiometric and Photometric Quantities and Units; Computerized Optical Ray Trace Analysis; Basic Concepts of Color Science
William Ross McCluney served as a principal research scientist from 1976 to 2007 at the Florida Solar Energy Center, a research institute of the University of Central Florida. He earned his doctorate in physics from the University of Miami, FL.
