About This Product
The USAF 1951 target pattern is a versatile aid for the determination of resolution and contrast in optical systems. The target pattern is defined by MIL-S-150A and contains blocks of 3 equally spaced bars set at right angles to each other. The frequency of each element varies according to the included chart. The large range of frequencies helps to pinpoint the resolution at which the system loses contrast or MTF.
This high resolution version of the standard USAF 1951 resolution target covers Group 0 Element 1 (1.00 LP/MM) to Group 9 Element 3 (645.08 LP/MM). The pattern is formed in durable double layer reflective chromium on a stable 1.5mm thick fused silica (Quartz) substrate.
