In order to determine haze, modulation transfer functions (MTF) were calculated for the dark-to-bright transitions in the reference and sample images shown in Fig.
Confirming the wavefront results, the objective visual quality did not differ between groups as determined by the Strehl ratio and modulation transfer function. MTF was used as an objective assessment for contrast sensitivity.
The Otto Schade Prize is awarded annually for "outstanding scientific or technical achievement in, or contribution to, the advancement of functional performance and/or image quality of information displays." The prize is named in honor of the pioneering RCA engineer Otto Schade, who invented the concept of the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and who used it to characterize the entire display system, including the human observer.
By fabricating, and then imaging, a binary pseudo-random array, the entire modulation transfer function can be determined.
