actinic dose

Hact

quantity obtained by spectrally weighting the spectral radiant exposure with the actinic action spectrum

where Ee,λ is the spectral irradiance in W⋅m−2⋅nm−1 and sact(λ) is the actinic action spectrum normalized to 1 at its maximum

Note 1 to entry: This definition is based on the assumption that an action spectrum is adopted for the actinic effect considered, and that its maximum value is 1.

Note 2 to entry: It is essential to specify which actinic action spectrum is used, as the unit is the same for any action spectrum.

Note 3 to entry: The actinic dose is expressed in joule per square metre (J·m−2)

Note 4 to entry: This entry was numbered 845-06-23 in IEC 60050-845:1987.

Note 5 to entry: This entry was numbered 17-14 in CIE S 017:2011.
