Radiance L = /(A ) W/(m2 sr)

Irradiance E =  /A W/m2

## Review of differential areas

Rectangular coordinates

dA = dx dy
Polar coordinates
dA = r dr d
Spherical coordinates
dA = r sin d d

## relates flux to radiance d = dL ·d

also called etendue or geometrical extent

## Example 1: infinitesimal area colinear with disk

since cos = D/s

Also,
Where m is angle from dA1 to edge of disk

Example 2: two parallel, colinear disks

where
E
xample 3: infinitesimal area at center of hemisphere

Notice that  2 dA1

For sample with area dA1 and reflectance , reflected flux

##  = ·E·dA1 = L· => ·E = ·L

Configuration factor

 = Fhem = FA1

For Example 1,

For Example 2,

## Laws of geometrical optics

1. Law of Transmission – in a region of constant refractive index, light travels in a straight line

2. Law of Reflection – incident angle = reflected angle
3. Law of Refraction – Snell’s Law

n1 sin1 = n2 sin2

## Levels of complexity

small angles => sin =

optical elements have no thickness

2. Paraxial

small angles => sin =

3. Exact
We will be limited to the thin lens approximation

Analysis of optical system
1. Lay out the optical system with all the elements, distances, sizes, etc.

2. Draw an axial ray (from source on axis) through the optical system. The first element that the axial ray encounters with increasing angle is the aperture stop. This stop limits the amount of flux collected. Also called the entrance aperture.

3. Draw a chief ray (from the center of the aperture stop on axis) through the optical system. The first element that limits the chief ray encounters with increasing angle is the field stop. This stop limits the extent of the image.

4. The image of the aperture stop in image space is the entrance pupil, its image in object space is the exit pupil.

5. The image of the field stop in image space is the entrance window, its image in object space is the exit window.

6. The ray from the center of the entrance pupil to the edge of the field stop is the field of view.

7. The throughput is calculated from the entrance pupil and window or the exit pupil and window.

Throughput calculation:

Note:

Decreasing d1 increases 
Relation between source size and field of view (FOV)
 = L· = E·A
1. FOV < Source
Detector is field stop

Increasing d0 does not change  or 

2. FOV > Source
Source is field stop

Increasing d0 decreases  and 

Thin lens equation

f is the focal length

so is the object distance

si is the image distance

If si < 0 the image is virtual

Magnification

If M < 0 the image is inverted

Throughput calculation:

Throughput calculation:

Same throughput using either exit or entrance pupils and windows

changing position of lens:

lens is new aperture stop, changing the throughput

vignetting

III. Measurement Equation
Relates the output signal of a detector to the radiant flux reaching the detector from the source
Ultimately relates the signal to the radiant properties of the source, such as its radiance or irradiance
Basic input-output relation:
S = R · 
where output = S = detector signal

input =  = radiant flux

R = response function

Variables:
spatial – area a and direction

spectral – wavelength 

other – time t, polarization , etc.
Propagation from source to detector:
Source – temperature T(a, ) and emissivity (T, , a, )
Propagation – radiance L(T, ) = L(T, , , a, )
Collection – throughput (a, )
d = dL · d
Selection – filter transmittance ()
d = dL · d · 
Detection – detector responsivity R(), amplifier gain G and signal S
dS = d · R · G
combining the expressions from above:
dS = dL(T, , , a, ) · d(a, ) · () · R() · G
the total signal is a multiple integral over all the variables, this is the measurement equation:
this measurement equation relates the thermal properties of the source to the spatial and spectral properties of the detector
note: this measurement equation does not explicitly include other variables on which it might depend, such as time, polarization, etc.
simplifying assumptions:
radiance is constant over area and direction

radiance and responsivity vary slowly over the wavelength range  of , which is peaked at a wavelength 0.

Often, all the parameters of a radiation thermometer are not known, so it is calibrated with a source of known radiance, yielding
