Abstract: Characteristics of a photometric setup used for the measurement of photometric quantities at the National Institute of Metrology (UME) in Turkey are reported. A high accuracy method is developed to adjust the filaments of incandescent lamps with respect to the optical axis. The method also provides the basis for low uncertainty distance measurements between lamp filaments and photometers. Transfer of photometric quantities at arbitrary distribution temperatures is examined both theoretically and experimentally, and the results are compared to the calibration values of the Bureau International Des Poids Et Measures (BIPM), Paris, France.
