# luminous fluence

[3.6] F(Δt)

The omnidirectional luminous energy externally incident on an elementary sphere per unit cross-sectional area, in time δt.

$F\left ( \Delta t \right )= dQ/da\left [ =\int _{\Delta t} \int _{4\pi } L d\omega dt\right ]$

where da is the cross-sectional area of the sphere.
