Application of the Planck Formula

  • Mikaél’ A. Bramson
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


In Chapter II it was shown that the various spectral scales are all essentially equivalent. It therefore suffices to examine the Planck formula in terms of the absolute temperature and a wavelength scale, for instance.
