Measurements and Photometry

These 13 articles were published between 1910 and 1990 and describe the development of the v-lambda function, the advent of physical photometry with photovoltaic cells, and advances in photometry for large sources.

Non-Visual Effects

These two articles appeared in 1968 and 1971 and deal with biological effects of light.

Roadway Lighting

Light distribution and roadway visibility are treated in these six articles that appeared between 1955 and 1975.

Vision

The 14 articles in this category describe various important effects and applications of vision research on lighting practice between 1910 and 1999.
