Abstract
Limiting resolution is a subjective and therefore unreliable measure of the imaging performance. The modulation transfer factor corresponding to a well chosen spatial frequency is an objective measure that has all the benefits but none of the disadvantages of the limiting resolution. The method of measuring the modulation transfer factor is relatively simple and can be expanded to give also the macroscopic uniformity and the distortion of the imaging device under test. The paper describes an instrument for the measurement of the modulation transfer factor of image intensifiers.
