quantum efficiency


Quantum efficiency (QE) is a figure given for a photosensitive device (charge-coupled device (CCD), for example) which is the percentage of photons hitting the photo reactive surface that will produce an electron-hole pair. It is an accurate measurement of the device’s sensitivity.
