Sensitivity

Sensitivity

(Science: microscopy) similar to responsively of an image pickup tube but numerically different. The signal current developed in an image pickup tube per unit incident radiation density (watt per unit area) or illuminance (lux on the faceplate). Unless otherwise specified, the radiation is understood to be that of an unfiltered incandescent source at 2854 or 2856macronK.
