IEC 61300-3-53:2015(E) is intended to characterize the encircled angular flux of measurement step index multimode waveguide light sources, in which most of the transverse modes are excited. The term waveguide is understood to include both channel waveguides and optical fibres but not slab waveguides in this standard. Encircled angular flux (EAF) is the fraction of the total optical power radiating from a step index multimode waveguide's core within a certain solid angle. The EAF is measured as a function of the numerical aperture full angle. The basic approach is to collect, for every measurement, two dimensional far field data using a calibrated camera and to convert them mathematically into encircled angular flux.
