Several holographic lenses were constructed and tested. The point spread functions of the lenses were scanned to obtain edge traces. The modulation transfer functions and the line spread functions were calculated from the edge traces. An integration of the MTFs provided a signal-to-noise metric similar to the Strehl ratio. The diffraction efficiencies of the lenses were measured. The results showed that all of these image quality metrics can be obtained from a point image.
