Abstract : Objective methods are presented for assessing characteristics of optical systems as opposed to the usual subjective approach. The objective characteristics considered were transfer characteristic, the sine wave response, and the signalto-deviation ratio. As a resul/ of the image evaluation experiment and associated studies conducted, methods are now available to assess the characteristics of imaging systems prior to design. A common language is provided to describe the performance of elements in an optical system so that the complete system can be designed from the characteristics of the constituent elements. In order to effectively use the techniques developed, the requirements and the environment in which the system is to be used must be well defined. (Author)
