Course Instructor
SC178: Introduction to Radiometry and Photometry
In this half-day course the basic quantities of radiometry, their units, and their relationships to electro-magnetic field quantities are presented. Photometry, its units, and conversion factors to older units are also addressed. The course covers the fundamentals of blackbody radiation generation and transfer. The basic equations needed to set up and solve problems are discussed. The course introduces radiometric and photometric sources, detectors of optical radiation, instrumentation, and calibration. The supplementary textbook, <i>Introduction to Radiometry and Photometry</i> by Ross McCluney, is provided with the course and offers more detail in detector optical/ electrical characterization, color theory, and optical properties of specific materials. This course is an ideal lead-in to SC944 The Radiometry Case Files, which provides many applied examples of the concepts introduced here.
