Paper Abstract

Advances in electro-optic and infrared systems have led to new ways in modeling complex objectives for IR imaging devices. One important indicator for the performance of an imaging system is the modulation transfer function (MTF). In this contribution we disclose the main aspects of IR-MTF measurement and focus on the ImageMaster® Universal IR product line from Trioptics GmbH Germany. These devices cover the whole spectral range from SWIR to LWIR and can be configured to measure optical systems with focal lengths between 1 mm and 2000 mm. The instrument is fully automatized to a very high degree, so it is suitable for laboratory use as well as instruments designed for the high volume production environment.
