Measurement of the lens optical transfer function using a tartan pattern

, : Measurement of the lens optical transfer function using a tartan pattern. Applied Optics 50(15): 2158-2169

We present a method for measuring the optical transfer function (OTF) of a camera lens using a tartan test pattern containing sinusoidal functions with multiple frequencies and orientations. The method is designed to optimize measurement accuracy for an adjustable set of sparse spatial frequencies and be reliable and fast in a wide range of measurement conditions. We describe the pattern design and the algorithm for estimating the OTF accurately from a captured image. Simulations show the tartan method is significantly more accurate than the International Organization for Standardization 12233 standard slanted-edge method. Experimental results from the tartan method were reproducible to 0.01 root mean square and in reasonable agreement with the slanted-edge method.
