1. A light source device comprising:a phosphor rotating body on which a phosphor formed on a surface and that is used in a state of rotation having an axis of rotation that is perpendicular to said surface;
a first excitation light source that irradiates first excitation light upon a first position that is separated by a predetermined distance from the center of rotation on said surface to cause emission of a first fluorescent light;
a detection light generation unit that irradiates detection light upon a second position that differs from said first position and that is separated by said predetermined distance from said center of rotation on said surface;
an optical detection unit that supplies a detection signal that corresponds to emission light that is emitted from said phosphor rotating body in response to said detection light; and
a control unit that receives said detection signal and that controls the intensity of said first excitation light on the basis of the detection signal.
