Study of the Dynamic Modulation Transfer Function of Modified Super-Wide-Angle Sagnac Imaging Interferometer
Modulation transfer function (MTF) is an important parameter for one image system. In order to obtain the more imaging quality performance of the modified super-wide-angle Sagnac imaging interferometer (MSASII) put forward by our group, and also have a qualitative analysis of its advantages and disadvantages in the process of application. Its dynamic MTF is focused on in this paper. The dynamic MTF expression of the MSASII is calculated. According to earlier research parameters of the MSASII, the dynamic MTF curve is described and corresponding corrective measures in theoretical is given. The result is demonstrated that the imaging quality of MSASII could satisfy the need of detecting upper atmospheric wind field.
