Unformatted text preview: Luminous Intensity and Apparent Brightness of Two LED’s Two light-emitting diodes (LED’s) are viewed in the laboratory. The LED’s are both 1000 mm from the observer (indicated by the eye at the right in the figure). The first is a SiC LED emitting at 480 nm (blue). Its axis is oriented at an angle of 30° with respect to the horizontal. The axis of the device is normal to the emitting surface. The second is a GaP:N LED emitting at 565 nm (yellow—green). Its axis is oriented at an angle of 60° with respect to the horizontal. Each of the LED’s has a total output optical power of 5 mW emitted into a Lambertian distribution. Each of the LED’s has an output area of 1 mm x 1 mm. Quantitative measurements of the LED’s are made by replacing the eye with a photodetector that has an area of 4mm2 and is positioned 1000 mm from the LED’s. Calculate, showing all work, the luminous intensity of each LED at the photode— tector. Express your answers in lumens/stemdian accurately to four significant figures. Which appears the brighter? Put your answers in the spaces provided. Luminous intensity of the first LED (blue) 2 lm/sr. Luminous intensity of the second LED (yellow—green) = lm/sr.
