15 October 2012 Seven deadly radiometry mistakes
Author Affiliations +
Radiometry mistakes are made throughout industry and academia with many of them being a result of misapplication of fundamental principles. Since we are all, in one way or another, students of Professor Bill Wolfe, this paper continues his example to educate at every opportunity and mitigate propagation of these errors. Based on the author’s observations, the top “seven deadly” radiometry mistakes are described with explanations and examples of the proper applications and interjections of Bill’s teaching concepts and wit.
