Where the prisms do not touch, total brohdun reflection occurs. Abstract No abstract available. This website uses cookies to deliver some of our products and services as well as for analytics and to provide you a more personalized experience. We’ve also updated our Privacy Notice.

Lummer- Brodhun Photometer – Physics Museum – The University of Queensland, Australia

This item is a Lummer-Brodhun Photometer. Some of the brodhunn light on each side is reflected by mirrors towards what is called a Lummer-Brodhun cube, which consists of two right-angled prisms. The housing is attached to a yoke on which it pivots. By matching the brightnesses of the two, the observer can use the known luminosity of one source and the distances to both sources to calculate the luminosity of the unknown source.

A Lummer-Brodhun cube is made up of two right-angled prisms that are placed with their hypotenuse sides together to form a cube. Sc Practical Physics, pg Privacy Phtoometer of Use.

The yoke is attached to a brass rod for insertion into an optical bench or other equipment.

On either side of lummdr screen are two large circular apertures in the sides of the box.

Similar to the Weber Photometer this item was designed to compare the brightness of an unknown phootmeter source to the brightness of a standard light source. When the brightness are identical, the two circles become one. Figure files are available to subscribers only. If you require urgent assistance, please contact Customer Service.

The light that is reflected off each side of the disk is directed through a right angled prism and towards a Lummer-Brodhun cube. You may subscribe either as an OSA member, or as an authorized user of your institution. Equipment of Class Rooms.

Journal of the Optical Society of America. Light from each brodhum the two sources enters through its respective entrance and illuminates one side of the white disk. The observer can then see a circular disc of light from one source, surrounded by an halo from the other.

In the box above the screen are two mirrors and a pair of prisms, which direct the light from the two light sources outside the box into the eyepiece at the top of the box.

Function This instrument was used in comparing the brightness of an unknown source of light with that of a standard one.
