external quantum efficiency (of a detector) [ηe; η]

ratio of the number of elementary events (such as release of an electron) contributing to the detector output, to the number of incident photons, including those reflected by the detector

Unit: 1

NOTE The use of the unqualified term "quantum efficiency" (η) always implies external quantum efficiency.
