Higher Physics - Unit 3 - Irradiance

I created my own revision notes for all units of the Higher Physics course.

These are revision notes for part of the 3rd unit (Radiation and Matter), section 3 (Optoelectronics and Semi-conductors). I've uploaded all the subsections of this section in different files as they are otherwise too large.

Irradiance covers:

  • Meaning of irradiance
  • Irradiance equations
  • Irradiance experiment
