Abstract

Most astronomical observers at some time become involved in photometric techniques even if the participation may be limited to a rough check of the brightness of an object for measurement at the telescope. The field is in fact so broad that much of the current work is more appropriate to the reviews of other IAU Commissions and it has become accepted that Commission 25 deals mainly with those subjects which are of common practical interest to photometrists and polarimetrists around the world. We are now at the beginning of a new stage, that of observation with space telescopes and it will be important to ensure that the transition to the new techniques of measurement is a smooth one. In our review, we restrict our discussion to stellar work, leaving to other Commissions the consideration of photometry and polarimetry of stellar systems, solar system objects and gaseous nebulae. We consider recent work concerning detectors, photometric and polarimetric systems, standard stars and sequences, catalogues of new material and related items of interest to observers. The reference numbering system of Astronomy and Astrophysics Abstracts is used where possible. We shall draw attention to some important conference volumes and to some major observing projects completed during the last 3 years and finally shall look briefly towards probable developments and future prospects for the times ahead.
