The modulation transfer function of a system gives a very thorough description of its resolving capabilities, showing the fraction of an object's contrast recorded by the system as a function of the object's size (spatial frequency).
The paper presents a methodology and an algorithm to assess image sharpness based on the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) of the scanning system.
They describe CCD and CMOS fundamentals; introduce array parameter issues such as well capacity, dark pixels, microlenses, and color filter arrays; explore the topics of quantum efficiency, responsivity, and noise sources; examine signal-to-noise ratio in terms of both radiometric units for scientific applications and photometric units for consumer applications; discuss image quality and its links to the system modulation transfer function and linear system theory; and describe different mathematical approaches to image quality.
