Angular response 3D

Scroll Prev Top Next More

This 3D example shows how to calculate the angular response of an image sensor array. It uses the technique described in the 2D angular response page with the 3D simulation described in the Initial simulation 3D page. This result can be compared to an experimental setup and it can also be used to calculate the optical efficiency under uniform illumination as described in Simulation methodology.
