Trefl question. - 52delta - 05-20-2014 08:30 PM

I am a generator tech by day and take my camera to work to practice. We'll I for forgot my tinfoil that I use to set my Trefl . I thought ... How far off could I really be if I just use my area box average at the panel to be scanned. I know the defuse foil would better mix the Trefl thus giving me a better average , but the average of radiation in the field of view is still the average right ?

No, Trefl does not come from the box being scanned. It comes from the reflecting source, this is probably the wall opposite the panel.
