Paper Abstract

The significance of modulation transfer function for optical components such as applied to the image intensifier and low light level television systems is well recognized. Photographic lenses are generally designed for high resolution, and for high contrast targets. These lenses usually do not have high modulation transfer characteristics at low spatial frequencies where performances of the image intensifier and television tubes are critical. The vital requirements for the low light level optical components are
