Abstract:

Some criteria and techniques currently used for the evaluation and analysis of photo-optical systems are discussed. This includes a discussion of resolution and sharpness, photographic spread functions, and modulation transfer functions. A critical appraisal is made of appealing analogies between electronic systems and optical systems, with emphasis placed on analytical techniques that would be applicable to more than one component of a photographic system. Some attention is given to the advantages and limitations of using analogies from non-linear systems theory in this context, and existing chemical theory also is taken into consideration. It is observed, in conclusion, that a considerable amount of further research would be necessary in order to tie these several theories together in any useful way. Author
