Paper Abstract

A simple fiber-optic interferometer was developed for testing black & white photographic materials. By means of the interferometer a sinusoidal fringe pattern is formed directly on a film under investigation, and the fringe spacing can be gradually varied. After developing and examining the film in coherent light it is possible to determine the absolute value of its resolving power. The resolving powers of several common negative films were measured to verify the usefulness of the method in photographic materials testing.
