In the past, fundamental radiometry with primary radiator standards was based on the realization of Planck's radiation law by high temperature blackbody radiators, and was therefore restricted to the spectral regions of the ir, the visible, and the near air uv. Today, radiometry is developed in a broadly extended spectral region using synchrotron radiation calculable according to Schwinger. Spectral photon fluxes generated by the primary radiator standard BESSY have uncertainties from 0.6% in the x-ray region (photon energy 15 keV), down to 0.2% in the visible and near ir (photon energy 1 eV). Up to the end of this decade, PTB intends to realize radiometric units at least from 1 eV to 100 keV by use of BESSY I and II. Undulator radiator standards will entail further progress in radiometry of vacuum uv and soft x-ray radiation for photon energies <EQ 1 keV.
