AbstractBroad band photometry is the most widely practiced method of measuring illumination in buildings. Errors in such measurements could occur if the photometer relative spectral responsivity does not exactly match the spectral luminous efficiency of the human eye. This note reports the variation in photometric errors observed when measuring different fluorescent and incandescent sources of illumination. Procedures for quantifying and minimizing such errors are discussed.
