Multiple Ray Buffers

This article describes a suite of scripts which use ray buffers to collect rays on multiple surfaces. Once stored, rays can be recalled for analysis on a surface-by-surface basis. This functionality has application for such common tasks as generating spot diagrams on various elements, ghost analysis and ray storage.

NOTE: For incoherent spatial calculations (irradiance, illuminance, color image, etc.) the tools described in this knowledge base article can be replaced by using the Detector Entities introduced in v10.100.
