On Swan's Prism Photometer, commonly called Lummer and Brodhun's Photometer

C. G. Knott
1902 Proceedings of the Royal Society of Edinburgh  
In 1849 William Swan, subsequently Professor of Natural Philosophy in the University of St Andrews, read a paper on the "Gradual Production of Luminous Impressions on the Eye and other Phenomena of Vision" before the Royal Society of Edinburgh (seeTransactions, Vol. XVI.). This paper contains some results of high interest, but I have no recollection of ever having seen it referred to in modern literature on the subject.
