In modern photometry, the radiant power at each wavelength is weighted by a luminosity function that models human brightness sensitivity. Typically, this weighting function is the photopic sensitivity function, although the scotopic function or other functions may also be applied in the same way." (from Wi ... Read more

Study, Measure, Experiment: Stories of Scientific Instruments at Dartmouth College

Pantalony, David;Manasek, Francis J.;Kremer, Richard L.

Norwich, VT, U.S.A.: Terra Nova Press, 2005. 1st Edition. Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. 1st Edition. ix, [1 blank], 271, [1 blank], [1 colophon ] pages. 4to. Publisher's cloth in dj, a new copy. Upper corner bumped. Cloth. Here is a book that has been underestimated in the marketplace. Not only are the illustrations very useful to the collector, dealer, and historian, but the authors have made a strong attempt to place the instruments in a historical context. Usually we have to pick between a picture book and a scholarly word-play when choosing scientific instrument books. Here we have both, a tribute to the authors.
