Visibility of interference fringes near the resolution limit.


The contrast sensitivity of the visual system to interference fringes has been measured in the range from 10 to 65 cycles/deg with a forced-choice psychophysical procedure. Masking produced by the spatial-noise characteristic of coherent fields was avoided by diluting the interferometric field with a fixed amount of uniform, incoherent light. The loss of… (More)
