We have developed a new technique for measuring the modulation transfer function (MTF) of a cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor. The "nominal" MTF was measured by displaying a line image of a width of one pixel on the CRT monitor using the pattern generator. We also measured the effective pixel width. In order to obtain the "actual" MTF, the nominal MTF was divided by the sinc function which is the Fourier transform of the effective pixel width. The results indicate that the corrected MTF converges to the constant value as the effective pixel width is narrower. Thus, the actual MTFs were determined and compared in the horizontal direction for two CRT monitors.
