Paper Abstract

Since 1971, five British Standards have been published on various aspects of the assessment of the performance of optical devices. They are: 1 BS 4779: 1971 Recommendations for measurement of the optical transfer function of optical devices. 2 BS 4793: 1972 Recommendations for specifying the optical performance of lenses for TV cameras. 3 BS 4995: 1973 Recommendation for measurement of the veiling glare index of lenses and optical systems. 4 BS 5109: 1974 Glossary of terms used in assessing the performance of optical devices and systems. 5 BS 5275: 1976 Environmental testing of optical devices and systems. The broad principles underlying these standards were discussed, and the content of each briefly outlined.
