Abstract

A theoretical study has been made of the effect of an apodizing screen in front of a circular aperture on the images of periodic objects with rectangular and triangular transmission profile. Irradiance distribution and contrast in the far field diffraction images have been calculated assuming the incident illumination to be completely incoherent. Object functions which give wave response similar to sine wave response (OTF) have been identified.
