Paper Abstract

The relationships between the characteristics of a source of radiation and its final energy distribution (or image) are presented. The black-body, the inverse square law, the irradiance or illumination produced on a surface, Lambert's law, the radiance or brightness of an image, and the relationship between radiometry and photometry are discussed.
