Abstract

Transparent luminescing screens can be used as image transducers in radiographic and image-intensifier systems. The modulation transfer function (MTF) and efficiency of these screens when used in conjunction with a receiver or recording medium are obtained from the derivation of the point spread function of the screen-receiver system. The derivation accounts for all optical paths and attenuations of the luminescent energy producing the spread function. Both the theoretical MTF’s and energy-transducing efficiencies of several screen-receiver systems are presented for various system parameters. The MTF of an actual (ZnS) screen-film system, computed from this derivation, was found to be in excellent agreement with the MTF of the system determined by photographic photometry.
