11 August 1995 Problem of the optimal reference sphere in the image quality evaluation
Author Affiliations +
In an earlier paper the author proposed a new image quality measure and a new definition of a center of a point spread. Determination of the value of this measure is equivalent to simultaneous optimalization of the reference sphere. This measure resolves itself into a mean square of the wave aberration in the case of small aberration. In the present paper, the parameters of the optimal reference sphere are calculated for the circular, annular and rectangular exit pupils.
