The use of White cells J. V. White. Long optical paths at large aperture, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 32285 1942 as light gatherers is analyzed in this report. Light-gathering efficiency as a function of source position within the cell is determined for a cell of typical dimensions, and is analyzed for cells of general dimensions. Some source locations are found to have high efficiency while others may have low efficiency or even be totally unobservable. It is evident, therefore, that White cells and the sources used with them must be properly designed and applied to be effective. Author
