Note that optical imaging systems are often specified in terms of units such as l p/mm, which stands for line pairs per millimeter, instead of specifying some maximum frequency sinusoidal pattern that can be detected.A line pair is a white stripe and black stripe, and it is a far easier pattern to produce than an accurate sinusoidal pattern.

However, a line-pair pattern is not sinusoidal, so. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xiii, pages: illustrations (1 color) ; 24 cm. Contents: 1.

SPIE Digital Library eBooks. Originally published by Wiley inthis timeless classic provides a well-illustrated treatment of the fundamental concepts of spatial frequency, spread function, wave aberration, and transfer function--and how these concepts are related in an optical system, how they are measured and calculated, and how they may be useful.

Edition 1st Edition. First Published eBook Published 4 May Pub. location New York. Author: Tom L Williams. This tutorial introduces the theory and applications of MTF, used to specify the image quality achieved by an imaging system.

It covers basic linear systems theory and the relationship between impulse response, resolution, MTF, OTF, PTF, and CTF. Practical measurement and testing issues are discussed. MTF of diffraction-limited optical imaging systems The MTF can be calculated as the magnitude of the Fourier transform of the PSF or as an autocorrelation of the pupil function.

Modulation Transfer Function in Optical and Electro-Optical Systems (TT52 series) by Glenn D. Boreman. This tutorial introduces the theory and applications of MTF, used to specify the image quality achieved by an imaging system.

We describe the mapping of the optical transfer function (OTF) of an incoherent imaging system into a geometrical representation. We show that for defocused traditional and wavefront-coded systems the OTF can be represented as a generalized Cornu spiral.

This representation provides a physical insight into the way in which wavefront coding can increase the depth of field of an imaging system.

OPTICAL MEASUREMENTS particularly in the treatment of complex optical problems. For example, when several optical subsystems are combined, the overall transfer function is the multiplication of the individual transfer functions.

The corresponding analysis, without the use of transfer functions, requires convolution of the corresponding impulse Size: KB. In the following, we will discuss the coherent and incoherent imaging systems from the transfer-function point of view. We will also discuss how to model optical aberrations in imaging systems.

Materials in this chapter are useful for understanding the concept of Fourier ptychography (FP). The modulation transfer function (MTF) is used to specify the image quality achieved by an imaging system.

It is particularly useful in analyzing situations in which several independent subsystems are combined. This tutorial provides the background information necessary for the application of MTF techniques to performance specification, estimation, and characterization of optical and electro.

Polarized Imaging Model. In engineering, a transfer function (also known as system function or network function) of an electronic or control system component is a mathematical function which theoretically models the device's output for each possible input. In its simplest form, this function is a two-dimensional graph of an independent scalar input versus the dependent scalar output, called a transfer curve or.

The function of thermal imaging systems is considered along with thermal radiation theory and atmospheric transmission, linear filter theory, visual psychophysics, performance summary measures, optics, scanning mechanisms, thermal imaging system types, and questions of sampling.

Aspects of visual target acquisition are discussed, taking into account fundamentals of target acquisition, eye. Optical transfer functions of underwater imaging systems employing narrow pulses or sinusoidally modulated beams for image formation are studied.

A modified Monte Carlo technique allowing for direct statistical modeling of these functions accounting for temporal dispersion is proposed and implemented. The optical transfer functions are calculated for various modulation frequencies of the Cited by: 1.

If the image quality performance evaluation is completely switched from the spatial to the frequency domain according to the Fourier optical picture, a linear system theory approach describes the system by a transfer function.
