photon exposure, Hp
Photon irradiance, Ep, integrated over the time of irradiation for a beam incident from all upward directions. SI unit is m-2.
  1. Mathematical definition: Hp = ∫(t) Ep.⁢dt. If the @P04637-2@ is constant over the time interval, Hp = Ep.t.
  2. This term refers to a beam not scattered or reflected by the target or its surroundings. For a beam incident from all directions photon fluence (Hp,o, Fp,o) is an equivalent term.
  3. This quantity can be used on a @C01019@ basis by dividing Hp by the @A00543@, the symbol then being Hn,p, the name 'photon exposure, amount basis', SI unit is mol m-2; common unit is einstein m-2.
