The need to assess the quality of an optical system arises first at the design stage when the designer is forced to make compromises in order to balance the influence of various image degrading parameters, and secondly, when the system is in the construction and assembly stage. Three methods of assessing the image quality of optical elements and electro-optical systems will be described in detail, along with numerous examples, analytical data and experimental results.
