The highly interesting thing is, brown absorbs all other colors but reflects red and green. This may be a source of your misunderstanding. The way humans perceive color is by having three types of photoreceptors in their eyes. Each of them has a broadish response function which means, that the "green" receptors react well to pure green light (as in ...

The answer depends very much on the white light and you will always get some coupling. In general the coupling is very low, simply by the second law of thermodynamics applied to the phase space of light: it becomes the law of increase of Optical Grasp (oka Étendue). Light at one wavelength in a one moded optical fiber at one wavelength is essentially zero ...

a need for coupling a white light into a SM fibre had just emerged to me. I remembered vaguely, that there is probably no better means to couple extended source, than stupid butt-coupling. So I took one FT030 SM fiber patchcord and simply put one end near to cellphone photo illumination LED, and some amount (exceptionally high to my poor expectations) passed ...

SCINTILLATION: $\bullet$ The evaluation of the intensity fluctuations of the transmitted signals of a scintillometer. $\bullet$ A rapid apparent displacement of a target indication from its mean position on a radar display; one cause is shifting of the effective reflection point on the target. (I myself don't like this second one though) $\bullet$ A brief ...

Just to wrap this up: I decided to use Tovar and Casperson' approach (Link 1,Link 2) using a 3x3 matrix, since I wasn't sure about the q-parameter in Shaomin's 4x4. It boils down to that as with the non-misaligned ray transfer matrix, $$ q_o = \frac{Aq_i + B}{Cq_i + D}$$ with the 3x3 beam matrix \begin{pmatrix} A & B & 0 \\ C & D & ...

First, webcams do use CCD or CMOS sensors, usually whichever chip is cheapest at the time. You can catch photons, but not reliably. In other words, for every photon that you catch, you will miss several. There will also be a noise signal, typically equivalent to many photons, Consider a CCD sensor. When a photon arrives, it may successfully excite an ...
