In the context of Photometry which is where we are (?), brightness is a deprecated word, implying that it's use is unscientific, unprofessional and infra dig. It says here:

"Photometric brightness is an old and deprecated term for luminance.

The physical measure of brightness.

Luminous intensity per unit projected area of any surface, as measured from a specific direction.

Luminance (usually 'L' in formulas) is the amount of visible light leaving a point on a surface in a given direction. This "surface" can be a physical surface or an imaginary plane, and the light leaving the surface can be due to reflection, transmission, and/or emission.

Standard unit of luminance is candela per square meter (cd/m²).
(also called nit in the USA, from latin "nitere" = "to shine")."
