Abstract : An approximate method has been developed for determining both the effective length and the internal impedance of the individual elements of a receiving array from the currents induced by the incident illumination. With this information and Thevenin's theorem, one can easily arrive at the load currents for any type of impedance loading of the array. (Author)
