Abstract

A general procedure is introduced for sidelobe and noise reduction in optical or digital signal processing. Specific examples of sidelobe reduction in imaging are presented. It is demonstrated that the new method provides superior spatial resolution to previously proposed sidelobe-reduction techniques.
