The Resolution/Brightness/Contrast Sensitivity of the Eye in Certain Forms of Picture Reproduction

Abstract

AT a meeting of the Physiological Section of the British Association last September, Prof. H. H. Hartridge described some experiments on visual acuity, using a Landolt ring as test object, which showed little difference in resolving power when the ring was illuminated with red, green or blue light. The results of some experiments which we have been carrying out appear to be relevant to this point.
