Noun[edit]

skot (plural skots)

  1. A unit of luminance, used for self-luminous objects equal to 10,000 brils or 10-7 lamberts.
    • 2014, William Ross McCluney, Introduction to Radiometry and Photometry, Second Edition[1], page 360:
      many of the old units-such as the nox, phot, glim, skot, and scot (identical), as well as the bril and brill (different)—are so antiquated as to be of interest only to the historian.
