Paper Abstract

The concept of image contrast as determined by the modulation transfer function is now a well established principle in the field of image evaluation. To date little use has been made of this principle other than to predict resolution of a lens from design data. As with any new principle, it takes some time to determine from experience the problems that may be treated, and the method of applying the technique. This paper reports the application of contrast transfer analysis to solve a very puzzling problem in image evaluation.
