Paper Abstract

A stray radiation analysis program (nicknamed MINI-APART after its namesake: APART) suitable for use on the HP-41C/CV calculator is described. The program is ideally suited for quick estimates of stray light performance in well-baffled optical systems, which are limited by scatter from the first optical element. Critical path models are described, including single scatter, double scatter, diffraction-scatter, and thermal emission-scatter. Program use is illustrated, and several comparisons are made with the results obtained by the large stray radiation programs, GUERAP-3 and APART/PADE.
