A novel standard light source with a more simplified construction, which is suitable for measurement of total luminous flux of a light source different in luminous intensity distribution characteristics from a conventional standard light source, and a measurement method with the use of that standard light source are provided. A standard light source includes a light emitting portion, a power feed portion electrically connected to the light emitting portion, and a restriction portion provided between the light emitting portion and the power feed portion, for restricting propagation of light radiated from the light emitting portion toward the power feed portion. A surface of the restriction portion on which light from the light emitting portion is incident is constructed for diffuse reflection.

An optical characteristic measuring apparatus includes a light source, a detector and a data processing unit. Data processing unit includes a modeling unit, an analyzing unit and a fitting unit. The plurality of film model equations are solved, and prescribed calculation is performed on the assumption that the optical constants included in the plurality of film model equations is identical. Fitting is performed between a waveform obtained by substituting the obtained film thickness and the obtained optical constants of the film into the film model equations and a waveform of the wavelength distribution characteristic obtained by detector, thereby determining that the optical constants included in the plurality of film model equations is identical and that the film thickness and the optical constants obtained by the analyzing unit are correct values.
