In order to describe the nonlinear magnification of the area obtained by mapping a flat unary circle onto a spherical surface, Eq. (15) is rewritten as a function of fi d0/_R. Thus, Eq. (15) becomes
After solution of Eq. (24), the value A fi is obtained and the diameter Ada of the enlarged area is given by
Ada R xAfi, where R is the input phosphor screen curvature.
By generalizing Eq. (15), a description of an arbitrary view angle has been derived. Considering d0 in Eq. (21) as a function of ft, and substituting it in dA d0 ft d0 ft ft , 26
derived from the geometry of Fig. 13, a quadratic equation is obtained,
