Paper 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.
