Contrast Optimization - A Faster and Better Method for Optimizing System MTF

July 26, 2017 7:30-8:30 AM PST

Zemax has developed a new optimization theory called Contrast Optimization, which targets the best MTF response at a desired spatial frequency. Optimization of the MTF is especially useful for extended images with cutoff frequencies set by the detectors, since lower spatial frequencies can be improved at the expense of higher, unneeded frequencies. But optimizing directly on the MTF value is slow, difficult, and often fails. Contrast Optimization increases the MTF in a much more robust way, and is just as fast as optimizing on the RMS wavefront.
