Paper Abstract

In this paper, the phase-space formulation is applied to the evaluation of nonimaging optics sub-systems. Brightness (luminance) efficiency is introduced as a Figure of Merit for system performance maximization procedures that can be applied, for example, to plasma diagnostics (by utilizing coherent fiber imaging).
