Theory of the summation of scattered light in clear zone compound eyes

Horridge, George Adrian; Ninham, B. W.; Diesendorf, M. O.


1. The clear zone between the cones and the receptors of dark-adapted nocturnal insects and crustaceans is considered as a region across which light entering the eye by many facets can sum upon the receptors beyond the clear zone. 2. In the model, light is admitted through each facet as a normal distribution. This amount of light spreads out from the cone tip as another normal distribution unrelated to the first except in total energy. The direction of arrival of a ray on the receptor is...[Show more]
