B6 – Commission B6 Astronomical Photometry and Polarimetry

Description


Commission B6 is concerned with photometric and polarimetric techniques and their standardization for the UV through far-IR/sub-mm spectral regions.  These are essential tools in the exploration and investigation of astronomical objects and quantities.  Solutions to a wide range of scientific problems require calibrated photometry and polarimetry at better than the 1% level.  Standardization is inescapable for exchanging data or merging data from different sources.
