M E A S U R I N G L I G H T (continued)
Though light measurement is rather an old discipline, its importance results from a wide application range:
from integrated optics, and fiber optic telecomm links, and any kind of lamp- and lighting design, through to astronomy and to nuclear fusion experiments.
So, understanding light measurement results across the disciplines is of paramount importance.
This understandability can benefit a great deal from extended use of a vocabulary that CIE has
Additionally, the CIE-recommended quantities are powerful tools for describing and measuring light
distributions and -densities across areas, angles, and wavelengths.
My essay uses and describes these terms in the context of practical measurement applications.
I hope that you find it, use it, and like it!
