This paper presents a theoretical and experimental study of the application of the near-field technique to the measurement of local radiance in small area semi-conductor sources. It is devoted to a description of the causes of broadening, and of the conditions needed to obtain the best near-field distribution. We examine the influence of the radius of the detector diaphragm, of the magnification used and of the modulation transfer function of the system.
