Paper Abstract

Recently it was reported a method to calculate the instrument function of a two-aperture radiometer which describes the energy transport through two apertures using the theory of partial coherence. The result of that work was expressed as a multiplication of a two-fold integral and its complex conjugate. In this work we solve partially this two-fold integral, particularly we introduce a semi-cicle angular integral that reduces the integration. This new representation allows a faster numerical evaluation as well as an easier interpretation of energy transport for radiometric considerations.
