Note 1 to entry: The term "spectral distribution" is to be preferred to the equivalent term "spectral concentration" when dealing with the function
Note 2 to entry: Usually
Note 3 to entry: The spectral distribution of radiant flux is expressed in watt per nanometre (W⋅nm−1), the spectral distribution of luminous flux is expressed in lumen per nanometre (lm·nm−1), the spectral distribution of photon flux is expressed in nanometre to the power minus one (nm−1). The units of spectral distributions of other quantities are expressed accordingly.
