Paper Abstract

This paper presents the results of a design and experimental evaluation of two potential diffuse efflux collectors for microdensitometers designed to obtain linearity at high sample spatial frequencies. Use of a large numerical aperture condenser and an electroformed reflector were examined. The phase edge response, a generalized Collier's Q-factor, and susceptibility to stray light noise were measured. Either collector offers improved linearity, however, better rejection of stray light noise will be required for their practical use.
