State-of-the-Art Metrology & Testing

Edmund Optics® employs a wide variety of metrology equipment to ensure the quality of all imaging lenses manufactured. Imaging-performance testing and environmental testing, for temperature, humidity, and shock and vibration, is conducted in house for custom imaging and optical assemblies. Product testing and certification reports are also available upon request. Our metrology equipment, including interferometers, profilometers, spectrophotometers, and coordinate measurement machines (CMMs), is one component of EO’s strict global quality program – to learn more about the program, please visit our page on Quality.



The modulation transfer function (MTF) of a lens measures how well a lens can resolve contrast at a specific resolution range. MTF curves let you compare one imaging lens to the next, but not all tests are the same.
