abstract

Efficient calculations in optical engineering are rarely accomplished through brute force raytracing. Using techniques derived from radiometry, it is possible to perform stray light, illumination uniformity, and thermal self-emission calculations both efficiently and accurately in a small fraction of the time it would take to trace the requisite number of rays.
