  Radiometry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In optics, radiometry is the field that studies the measurement of electromagnetic radiation, including visible light.
Radiometry is important in astronomy, especially radio astronomy, and is important for Earth remote sensing.
The measurement techniques categorized as radiometry in optics are called photometry in some astronomical applications, contrary to the optics usage of the term.

We discuss in the following microwave thermography, or, more correctly, radiometry, with is defined as the measurement of natural electromagnetic radiation or emission from the body at microwave frequencies to allow the detection and diagnosis of pathologic conditions in which there are disease related temperature differentials.
Present detection techniques other than radiometry require that the tumor have mass and contrast with respect to the surrounding tissue (i.e., palpation physical examination, mammography, ultrasonography and diaphonography).

METAS's Radiometry Laboratory concentrates its activities on the most frequently requested wavelength range from the ultraviolet to the near infra-red (currently 250 nm to 1100 nm).
As a result, for calibration purposes it is necessary to have the corresponding measuring instruments for detectors (spectral calibration of detectors and laser laboratory) as well as for sources (spectroradiometry of lamps).

 MOLA PASSIVE RADIOMETRY
MOLA began mapping the surface of Mars in passive mode on October 9, 2001.
In radiometry mode the instrument has been optimized to increase the sensitivity of passive reflectivity measurements compared to those passive measurements that were collected while the instrument was in altimetry mode.
Using this approach the MOLA team is now analyzing passive observations obtained during the MGS mapping and extended mission when the instrument was in altimetry mode as well as in the E2 mission with the instrument in radiometry mode.

 National Measurement Institute - Photometry and radiometry calibration services
Optical radiometry involves measurements of electromagnetic radiation in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral regions by means of detectors of radiation that produce a measurable physical quantity directly related to the amount of radiation absorbed by the detector.
In electrical substitution radiometry, the temperature rise of the detector due to the incident radiation is equated to electrical heating, thereby relating radiometric power to the known standards of electric voltage and resistance.
The radiometric power incident on the photodiode is calculated from the photocurrent and the wavelength of the incident radiation, relating the radiometric power to the standards of voltage and resistance, and to the known physical properties of gases.

 Radiometry   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Radiometry is the science of measuring light in any portion of the spectrum.
Therefore, the color is not important to the radiometry.
A broadband source, like the Sun, emits the energy throughout most of the spectrum, while, on the other hand, single-wavelength laser emits radiation only at one specific wavelength.

 Radiometry vs. photometry FAQ
Radiometry is the measurement of optical radiation, which is electromagnetic radiation within the frequency range between 3×10
The only real difference between radiometry and photometry is that radiometry includes the entire optical radiation spectrum, while photometry is limited to the visible spectrum as defined by the response of the eye.
Radiometry, on the other hand, is conceptually somewhat simpler, but is far more difficult to actually do.
