Cited by links are available broodhun subscribers only. A Lummer-Brodhun cube is made up of two right-angled prisms that are placed with their hypotenuse sides together to form a cube. This cube directs the light rays coming from both sides of the disk into the eyepiece so that the user can observe the light from both sources simultaneously.

The photometer consists of an opaque screen which can be removed from a box. Not Accessible Your account may give you access. Remember me on this computer.

Light rays from the two sources enter on either side of the box. Similar to the Weber Photometer this item was designed to compare the brightness of an unknown light source to the brightness of a standard light source. The observer can then see a circular disc of light from one source, surrounded by an halo from the other. When this is accomplished, the luminosity of the unknown source can be calculated.

For a fuller description, see the following website. On either side of the screen are two large circular apertures in the lummwr of the box.

When the brightness are identical, the two circles become one. The light that is reflected off each side of the disk is directed through a right angled prism and towards a Lummer-Brodhun cube.
