Abstract:

An experimental-calculational procedure has been proposed for determining the transfer and reflection characteristics of scattering media by a relative method with the use of a special test-object in the form of a mira whose brightness is modulated by a linear law. The use of this test-object permits the optical transfer function modulus to be determined in one experiment for several points from the preset range of spatial frequencies as well as the diffuse reflection coefficient of the scattering layer to be calculated from video-signal amplitudes reflected by mira bands. The number of measurements required to obtain sufficient statistic of observations is approximately by an order of magnitude less in comparison with the Foucalt quasiharmonic miras.
