Random information on the term “Radiance”:
Etendue or étendue (/ˌeɪtɒnˈduː/; French pronunciation: [etɑ̃dy]) is a property of light in an optical system, which characterizes how “spread out” the light is in area and angle. It corresponds to the beam parameter product (BPP) in Gaussian optics.
From the source point of view, it is the product of the area of the source and the solid angle that the system’s entrance pupil subtends as seen from the source. Equivalently, from the system point of view, the etendue equals the area of the entrance pupil times the solid angle the source subtends as seen from the pupil. These definitions must be applied for infinitesimally small “elements” of area and solid angle, which must then be summed over both the source and the diaphragm as shown below. Etendue may be considered to be a volume in phase space.
Etendue is important because it never decreases in any optical system where optical power is conserved. A perfect optical system produces an image with the same etendue as the source. The etendue is related to the Lagrange invariant and the optical invariant, which share the property of being constant in an ideal optical system. The radiance of an optical system is equal to the derivative of the radiant flux with respect to the etendue.
