Photon wavelength probability distribution for blackbody Watch

    Hey everyone,


    This is my first time posting here!


    I want to model the photons ejected from a blackbody source at temperature T.
    The question I want answered is: given a photon is detected, what is the probability of the photon having a wavelength λ. This amounts to just attaining the probability density function for the different wavelengths.


    We normal talk about blackbodies in terms of intensity, or more specifically spectral radiance, but I want to talk about the individual photon wavelength distribution.

    Any thoughts on whether this is right?

    Thank you!
