Paper Abstract

We have measured the modulation transfer function (MTF) of fiber-optic bundles (reducers), minifiers (inverting, electrostatically focused imaging tube reducers), microchannel plate image intensifiers (MCPIs), and streak tubes as part of our ongoing device evaluation program aimed at precise characterization of various imaging elements used in fast cameras. This paper describes our measurement equipment and techniques and shows plots of MTF measurements for each of four types of fast-cameras elements tested.
