photon flux [Φp]

quotient of the number of photons, dNp, emitted, transmitted, or received in an element of time, dt, by that element of time


Unit: s-1

NOTE For a beam of radiation whose spectral distribution is    or  , the photon flux Φp is:



h is the Planck constant;

c0 is the speed of light in vacuum.
