Paper Abstract

The study of image evaluation is a complex subject requiring the simultaneous consideration of the object, optical system, detector, and mechanism for processing the detector's signals. Image quality for any given photo-optical system depends upon such diverse considerations as granularity, light scattering, numerical aperture, tone reproduction, the degree of correction in the image-forming optics, etc.
