A Lummer-Brodhun cube is made up of two right-angled prisms that are placed with their hypotenuse sides together to form a cube. April 1, Published: For a fuller description, see the following website. When the brightness are identical, the two circles become one. This Photometer consists of a metal box with two entrances and an eyepiece as well as a slot which allows a white magnesium carbonate disk to be mounted between the two entrances.

The photometer consists of an opaque screen which can be removed from a box. This item is a Lummer-Brodhun Photometer. Sc Practical Physics, pg Login or Create Account. 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.


OSA will be closed for the holidays from 21 December What the observer sees in the eyepiece is two superimposed circles on top of each other, one smaller than the other.

Some of the scattered light on each side is reflected by mirrors towards what is called a Lummer-Brodhun cube, which consists of two right-angled prisms. Equipment of Class Rooms.

The observer can then see a circular disc of light from one source, surrounded by an halo from the other.

The light that is reflected off each side of the disk is directed through a right angled prism and towards a Lummer-Brodhun cube. Figure files are available to subscribers only. The yoke is attached to a brass rod for insertion into an optical bench or other equipment.

Where the prisms do not touch, total internal reflection occurs. By llummer the unknown light source farther or closer to the photometer, one tries to get rid of the two distinct circles.

Where they do, all the light is transmitted to the other side. 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. Light from each of the two sources enters through its respective entrance and illuminates one photometsr of the white disk.

The housing is attached to a yoke on which it pivots. Not Accessible Your pphotometer may give you access. On either side of the screen are two large circular apertures in the sides of the box. Click here to learn more.

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