Paper Abstract

The modern electron-optical system (EOS) consists of electron-optical camera and a readout system under computer control. The characterization of the electron-optical system includes a sensitivity, dynamic range (DR), modulation transfer function and noise calibration. Instead of usual DR definition we propose a definition of useful DR (UDR) which is connected to the number of distinguished intensity levels. We also consider the CCD linearity and pulse FWHM estimation by Gaussian approximation. We propose computer techniques for the modulation transfer function estimation using a test source at different pulse energy. Examples of calibration of different systems are presented.
