Abstract

The efficiency of a Lyot stop in reducing the effects of diffraction is analyzed for a Fourier optical system. The problem reduces to the evaluation of an integral whose integrand is the product of two Bessel functions of different order and argument. An analytic series solution is found for the reduction of diffracted light reaching the focal plane.
