Radiance functions that depend nonlinearly on the cross-spectral density

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Recently a new definition of radiance was proposed [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 1, 556 ( 1984)] that depends nonlinearly on the cross-spectral density of the field and satisfies the three major postulates of traditional radiometry. We show that there are an infinite number of such radiance functions. Their utility is discussed.
