Abstract:

The measurement of the image forming properties of the human visual system by means of a photoelectric ophthalmoscope and retinal light distributions for bright bar targets 1.6 ft wide for pupil diameter ranging from 3-8 mm. are presented. Spatial frequency response functions for these pupil diameters are also given. These functions, which are independent of the target used to measure them, describe the image formation properties of the optics. The color appearance of small briefly presented monochromatic stimuli vary in color from flash to flash. The color mixer uses monochromatic stimuli obtained by selecting portions of a spectrum produced by passing white light through a replica grating. A model suitable for student use has been constructed. Author
