spectral photon radiance, L p λ

The photon radiance, L p, at wavelength per unit wavelength interval. The SI unit is s −1 m −3 sr −1, but a commonly used unit is s −1 m −2 sr −1 nm −1. Alternatively, the term can be used with the amount of photons (mol or its equivalent einstein) the SI unit then being mol s −1 m −3 sr −1 and the common unit mol s −1 m −2 sr −1 nm −1.
