Abstract

A dyed or pigmented gelatin mask cast in a shallow spherical mold cavity can provide excellent compensation for the cos3α or cos4α fall-off of illuminance on a flat surface. Computed data are shown for the imperfection of correction under a variety of geometric conditions, and some typical applications are described.
