Abstract

The effect that any parameter of a holographic or coherent imaging system would have on the resultant image is normally described by an amplitude modulation transfer function. We show here that an intensity modulation transfer function (MTF) can be used to analyze the coherent systems if diffuse targets are employed and if the usable area of the detector is much larger than the least resolvable spot in the image.
