**Converting LED photometric to radiometric values
**

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are used often in visual display applications. Consequently,

it is standard for the optical power output of visible-wavelength LEDs to be specified in

photometric units, which are radiometric units weighted according to the standard human

eye response. Specifically, the radiometric values are weighted by the photopic, or lightadapted, eye response (as opposed to the scotopic response, which is only valid for truly

dark-adapted vision). Tables listing values for these curves are included in our class

notes, along with further details on radiometric and photometric units and terminology.

The most common specification for the amount of light radiated by a visible-wavelength

LED is “radiant intensity” in units of mcd (millicandelas). A candela is a lumen/steradian

(lm/sr), while a lumen is the photometric unit of radiant flux that is just a scaled version

of optical power in watts.

Any photometric quantity can be obtained from its radiometric counterpart as follows:

(1)

xv K m x v( )d ,

where xv is a photometric quantity, x is the corresponding radiometric quantity, v() is

the visual response function normalized to a peak value of one, and Km is the luminous

efficacy, which serves as the scale factor carrying the proper value and units for v(). For

the photopic response function, Km is 683 lumens/watt, corresponding to the peak of v()

at a wavelength of 555 nm.

Monochromatic conversions

If the source radiates effectively only at one wavelength, equation (1) becomes a simple

algebraic expression that can be solved easily in either direction (radiometric to

photometric, or vice versa).

xv K m x v( ) .

(2)

For example, a red LED made of AlGaAs with model number LTST-C190CKT is listed

on its data sheet as emitting a typical luminous intensity Iv = 20 mcd. If we assume the

LED emits all of its light at the peak wavelength of 660 nm, then we can simply read

from the v() table and perform the following simple algebraic conversion:

Iv

0.020 [lm/sr]

I

4.8 10 4 [w/sr] 0.48 [mw/sr].

(3)

K m v( 660 nm) 683 [lm/w] 0.061

However, the data sheet actually lists two different wavelengths:

a) peak wavelength

660 nm

wavelength of actual peak emission

b) dominant wavelength

638 nm

wavelength of perceived emission

The dominant (or human-perceived) wavelength is shorter than the peak-emission

wavelength because the LED’s emission spectrum is several tens of nm wide and the

photopic eye response is much higher at short wavelengths than at long wavelengths.

Selecting between these two wavelengths requires consideration of non-monochromatic

conversions through spectral integration.

For example. Shaw F12 Non-monochromatic conversions When a source does not emit at a single wavelength. 2 . Figure 2.EELE 482 Electro-Optical Systems J. A. The photopic visual response function over the LED’s spectral range. the LTST-C190CKT LED’s spectral emission function is plotted in Figure 1 and the photopic visual response function is plotted in Figure 2 over the same spectral range. Figure 1. the spectral distribution function must be considered when converting between radiometric and photometric values. Spectral emission function for the LTST-C190CKT red LED.

Here it is clear that the dominant wavelength for human perception is shorter than 660 nm (it is not clear that the best dominant wavelength value is 638 nm. and 3 are listed in Table 1. There are many people who make careers out of inverting integral equations to estimate an unknown quantity from imperfect measurements of another quantity. Doing this requires at least knowing the spectral distribution of the radiometric quantity. as follows. So the question naturally arises. 2. showing that the human-perceived LED radiation is dominant at shorter wavelengths than the actual LED spectral emission function (Fig. In this manner we can write (4) I v 683I f ( )v( )d. A. which is the curve shown in Figure 1.EELE 482 Electro-Optical Systems J. which requires looking at the colorimetric coordinates of the emission on a CIE color diagram). ‘which wavelength gives the best monochromatic approximation of the radiometric output from the photometric data sheet value?’ To answer this rigorously requires inverting the integral equation (1). finding the radiometric value embedded inside of the integral from a single photometric number is not trivial. 1). However. 3 . Figure 3. Product of LED emission spectrum and the photopic visual response function. Shaw F12 The human-perceived LED output is obtained by integrating the product of these two curves. The values of f() and v() used to create the graphs in Figures 1. Let’s express the radiometric intensity as a single value I [w/sr] multiplied by a dimensionless spectral distribution function f(). as is shown in Figure 3. A non-monochromatic conversion can be performed at least approximately if we use the known LED spectral emission function together with the known photometric luminous intensity.
