A report on Light and Radiometry
Radiometry is a set of techniques for measuring electromagnetic radiation, including visible light.- Radiometry
Light is measured with two main alternative sets of units: radiometry consists of measurements of light power at all wavelengths, while photometry measures light with wavelength weighted with respect to a standardized model of human brightness perception.- Light

Photometry is the science of the measurement of light, in terms of its perceived brightness to the human eye.
It is distinct from radiometry, which is the science of measurement of radiant energy (including light) in terms of absolute power.
Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it.
Other research focuses on the phenomenology of electromagnetic waves as in singular optics, non-imaging optics, non-linear optics, statistical optics, and radiometry.
