Abstract

A class of filters is studied for applications in optical spectrum analyzers. The output device of the analyzer is a masked vidicon. Consequently the design criteria differ from those for filters commonly used in digital data processing, radar antenna shading, and conventional apodization. It is shown that crosstalk or interlocus interference can be reduced for practical geometries to a level about 20–30 dB lower than that of an unshaded aperture.
