Hi Mike,

What about the zero crossing points that are exactly f separated, which will
not be detected at Nyquist...hence, why I say slightly more than Nyquist is
required to guarantee %100 detection???

But, one thing that is VERY important is there is a difference between
sampling sine waves and square waves.  These test patterns are square waves.
Though at Nyquist, you guarantee detecting the frequency, you do not
guarantee full amplitude.

To sample square waves, and GUARANTEE getting at least ONE "sensor" that
contains full amplitude, you MUST sample at 4x f (or 2x the line width, NOT
line pair width)...and in the case of an image, f really doesn't matter, but
the thickness of the line (which would be 2f).
