Paper Abstract

There are subtle effects on the MTF of any optical device when 'stray light' is present along with the test pattern (usually a slit). Reported here are observations on image intensifiers, using the Ealing Solid-State MTF analyzer, which allows more detailed readout than with some prior systems. The shape of the MTF curve at low space-frequencies can yield clues about the effects of stray light.
