Paper Abstract

A commercial Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) measurement system has been customized to be application specific to spatially coherent fiber optic coupled imaging systems. Theoretical considerations, the required mathematical assumptions and the modified test conditions used to achieve accurate and repeatable MTF measurements are described. Experimental results on a matrix of advanced fiber optic materials evaluate for short range order effects including element size, orientation, shear distortion and architecture. These results help to emphasize the value of the MTF curve over limiting resolution or discrete MTF values in qualifying the imaging performance of fiber optics.
