Abstract
A stationary phase method and ambiguity function (AF) method were used to conduct an analytical study of a modulation transfer function (MTF). From the perspective of mathematic models, there was a double integral relationship between the MTF and system wave aberrations. Based on the stationary phase and AF methods, the wave aberration term in the MTF expression was analytically discussed to achieve an aberration function derivation and extreme point analysis, thereby obtaining the analytical expressions of an every field-of-view (FOV) MTF and defocusing distance (i.e., the deviation of an MTF optimal imaging plane from an axial imaging plane) in the full FOV of an optical system. From the obtained image quality evaluation function, the defocusing distance and system image quality could be effectively controlled in a full FOV, which was verified using the examples.
