Photometria in a sentence

1. The term albedo was introduced into optics by Johann Heinrich Lambert in his 1760 work Photometria.

2. It is often attributed to Johann Heinrich Lambert, who cited Bouguer's Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière (Claude Jombert, Paris, 1729)—and even quoted from it—in his Photometria in 1760.

3. It is named after Johann Heinrich Lambert, from his Photometria, published in 1760.

4. In 1760, he published a book on photometry, the Photometria.

5. In Photometria Lambert also formulated the law of light absorption (the Beer–Lambert law) and introduced the term albedo.

6. Lambertian reflectance is named after Johann Heinrich Lambert, who introduced the concept of perfect diffusion in his 1760 book Photometria.

7. Lambertian reflectance is named after Johann Heinrich Lambert, who introduced the concept of perfect diffusion in his 1760 book Photometria.

8. DiLaura is a Fellow and Gold Medalist of the Illuminating Engineering Society, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of Tau Beta Pi, and has his LC. He has been topic editor of the 8th and 9th editions of the IES Lighting Handbook and editor of the 10th edition, he has published 42 technical papers, a translation and analysis of Johann Lambert’s seminal Latin work "Photometria", authored "A History of Light and Lighting", and for eight years was Editor-in-chief of the journal of the Illuminating Engineering Society, LEUKOS.

9. Photometria is a book on the measurement of light by Johann Heinrich Lambert published in 1760.

10. Photometria was the first work to accurately identify most fundamental photometric concepts, to assemble them into a coherent system of photometric quantities, to define these quantities with a precision sufficient for mathematical statement, and to build from them a system of photometric principles.

11. In this way Photometria demonstrated (rather than assumed) that.

12. But more importantly, as Anding pointed out in his German translation of Photometria, "Lambert had incomparably clearer ideas about photometry" and with them established a complete system of photometric quantities.

13. Based on the three laws of photometry and the supposition of perfectly diffuse surfaces, Photometria developed and demonstrated the following: Lambert's book is fundamentally experimental.

14. The forty experiments described in Photometria were conducted by Lambert between 1755 and 1760, after he decided to write a treatise on light measurement.

15. This interest in experimental data and its analysis, so evident in Photometria, is also present in other articles and books Lambert produced.

16. On this basis, Photometria is certainly uncharacteristic of mid-18th century works.

17. From the references in Photometria and the catalogue of his library auctioned after his death, it is clear that Lambert consulted the optical works of Newton, Bouguer, Euler, Huygens, Smith, and Kästner.

18. He finished Photometria in Augsburg in February 1760 and the printer had the book available by June 1760.

19. Maria Jakobina Klett (1709–1795) was owner of Eberhard Klett Verlag, one of the most important Augsburg “Protestant publishers.” She published many technical books, including Lambert’s Photometria, and 10 of his other works.

20. Klett used Christoph Peter Detleffsen (1731–1774) to print Photometria.

21. Priestley makes a specific reference to Photometria;

22. An abridged German translation of Photometria appeared in 1892, a French translation in 1997, and an English translation in 2000.

23. Photometria presented significant advances and it was, perhaps, for that very reason that its appearance was greeted with general indifference.

24. The central optical question in the middle of the 18th century was: what is the nature of light? Lambert work was not related to this issue at all and so Photometria received no immediate systematic evaluation, and was not incorporated into the mainstream of optical science.

25. The first appraisal of Photometria appeared in 1776 in Georg Klügel’s German translation of Priestley’s 1772 survey of optics.

26. Photometria was not seriously evaluated and utilized until nearly a century after its publication, when the science of astronomy and the commerce of gas lighting had need for photometry.

27. Photometria had significant, though long delayed influence on technology and commerce once the industrial revolution was well underway, and is the reason that it was one of book listed in Printing and the Mind of Man.
