Abstract

A method has been developed for measuring the energy distribution across optical images of a line source. This method is completely photographic. It makes use of a line source and a neutral colloidal carbon wedge having a linear increase in density with distance. The energy distribution across edge diffraction patterns can be measured by a slight variation of this method.
