Abstract

The effects of Fourier-plane, or spectral, amplitude and phase errors on reconstructed images are studied in terms of the expected mean square error in the image. The relationship between the variance of amplitude and phase errors and the expected mean square error is derived for small amplitude errors and arbitrarily large phase errors. This allows “equivalent” amplitude and phase errors to be defined. The effects of large amplitude errors are discussed in general terms. Simulations are used to verify these relationships, and the effects of spectral amplitude and phase errors on reconstructed images are compared.
