Paper Abstract

At every conference since 1995 we have reported on work in- progress to find a consistent formalism connecting the radiance concept with measurement of radiance, even under conditions where wave effects are important. In such circumstances, classical radiometry no longer provides an adequate description. In this conference we report on measurements of radiance that are well modeled by our theory, but would not be adequately described by classical radiometry.
