CCD vs. CMOS – Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) in NIR

We have been reevaluating the strengths and weaknesses of CCD and CMOS looking at the latest generation industrial image sensors and subsequent cameras. We have compared sensitivity, read noise, and blooming and smear performance. Now let’s consider the Modulation Transfer Function or MTF… The MTF of optics, say a lens, is the reduction in modulation…
