Two models of the partially focused clear zone compound eye

Diesendorf, M. O.; Horridge, George Adrian


1. The theory of the unfocused clear zone eye is extended to cover cases where rays are partially focused upon the receptor layer. 2. Light is admitted through facets according to a Gaussian distribution of angle of incidence defined with respect to the axis of the facet. 3. The same light crosses the clear zone in an average direction related to its direction of origin outside the eye, so that it tends to be concentrated around that receptor on the radial axis pointing towards the source of...[Show more]
